In From Iuka to Vicksburg, 1862–1863, Grant leads the Union army to victory. The story of western operations testifies to Grant’s effectiveness. He and his soldiers move through Kentucky, and Tennessee and down the Mississippi Valley during a difficult winter. Ahead is Vicksburg and a turning point in the Civil War. One critic called this volume “probably the most thoroughly documented study of Grant in the West.”

Review:

“Magnificent military history, written in the grand style on a grand scale. Based upon an intimate acquaintance with the terrain of the operations, upon an expert knowledge of military theory and organization, and upon an exhaustive study of the ‘Official Records’ of the war, [this] is a major work of scholarship, the finest account anywhere to be found of Federal armies in the Civil War.”—David Donald, New York Times Book Review (David Donald New York Times Book Review)

“[A] magnificent study . . . skillfully presenting the maturation of Grant as a man and a military leader from carefully documented records.”—Journal of American History (Journal of American History)
