Summary
"Despite his reputation for rash decisions, brutal tactics, and intemperate behavior, Ulysses S. Grant was the only Union general who could win the war for Lincoln. Grant's aggressive strategies, swift movements and uncompromising battlefield attacks were praised in the North, feared in the South, and reviled by many of his own associates and staff. General Grant is, perhaps, one of the most controversial, enigmatic, and misunderstood generals in our nation's history." "In this new biography of Grant, acclaimed Civil War historian, Edward G. Longacre, examines Grant's early life and his military career for insights into his great battlefield successes as well as his personal misfortunes. He concentrates on Grant's boyhood and early married life, especially his years in Missouri and Illinois following his 1854 resignation from the army. He examines Grant's moral, ethical, and religious views; his conflicting attitudes toward his profession; and his relationships with wartime superiors and subordinates."--Jacket
