Freeman's books seem to be more of a narrative while Connelly's are academic and analytical. Freeman's writing is much more positive; even if an officer ultimately fails, most of them at some point during their career did something positive for the Confederacy. With Connelly, most everyone comes off as an incompetent buffoon.

I would never say that the generalship of the Tennessee army was better than Lee's but were they truly THAT bad?
