Rebel Yell is an easy-to-read biography of Stonewall Jackson focusing on his Civil War career with interspersed chapters about his life before the war. As a popular history work, the book effectively touches on Jackson’s complex nature, but readers who possess more than a cursory knowledge of the famous general will discover little new information or insight about his character from this narrative.
