New York: Anchor Books. 2013. 1st Printing. 718 pp. Ulysses Grant emerges in this masterful biography as a genius in battle and a driven president to a divided country, who remained fearlessly on the side of right. He was a beloved commander in the field who made the sacrifices necessary to win the war, even in the face of criticism. He worked valiantly to protect the rights of freed men in the South. He allowed the American Indians to shape their own fate even as the realities of Manifest Destiny meant the end of their way of life. In this sweeping and majestic narrative, bestselling author H.W. Brands now reconsiders Grant's legacy and provides an intimate portrait of a heroic man who saved the Union on the battlefield and consolidated that victory as a resolute and principled political leader.Keywords: MILITARY AMERICAN CIVIL WAR BIOGRAPHY ULYSSES GRANT PRESIDENT UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PRESIDENTIAL UNION GENERAL Condition Notes: 1st printing.
