A very interesting book that goes into much greater detail on what Texas Defender has so ably described is "Jefferson Davis and His Generals: The Failure of Confederate Command in the West" by Steven E Woodward.

Although the book does concentrate on the generals who fought in the western theater of operations which includes Georgia and the Atlanta campaign, it spends much time describing Jefferson Davis himself , his character, his illnesses and the way he chose and treated his generals.  It also describes many of the very difficult challenges Davis faced.

This book is one of my favorite books about the Civil War and the Confederacy.
