9781537092041: Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant

The 18th President of the United States and 6th Commanding General of the United States Army, Ulysses S. Grant wrote his memoirs during the final year of his life. Very highly regarded, President Grant’s memoirs focus on his military career, particularly his exceptional service in the Civil War, and on his two terms as President. The memoirs, initially published by Mark Twain, give a truly fascinating insight into a remarkable man, pivotal in American history.

Review:

In 1862, a prominent Republican visited President Lincoln and called General Ulysses S. Grant an incompetent drunk who created unnecessary political problems. Lincoln, frustrated with all his generals but this one, famously replied: "I can't spare this man; he fights." Indeed, Lincoln had gone through a series of unheroic generals before settling on Grant to lead the Union's Army of the Potomac. Grant's success at marshaling the industrial might of the North eventually pounded the South into submission. This memoir, finished as its author was dying of throat cancer in 1885, is widely admired for its clear and straightforward prose. The volume was an enormously popular hit upon publication (by Mark Twain, no less), and today Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant ranks among the finest pieces of military autobiography ever written.

From the Publisher:

These are in stock and ready for immediate shipment if you use the DSI4 Marketplace shop. This is a Great gift for the upcoming holiday season. The paper used is library quality and this is not a mass market paperback set.
