    1. A 5 star book, not a 5 star biography of Davis, but an excellent view of what really went wrong in the south with enough prescient insight into the faults and flaws of Davis to keep it at 5 stars. Refreshingly honest and enjoyable. Edited to also add that it is rife with misprints and typos I can't believe that after ninety years they still can't get it right - fortunately, Mr. Tate's writing skills more than make up for it!


    2. An interesting close reading of Jefferson Davis' life and presidency, and how a combination of factors drove Davis and the South to ruin in the Civil War. I was fascinated to realize that without a few of those factors, the South could very well have won, and easily.
