Publisher's Summary

In this newest addition to the Great Generals Series, John Mosier brings to life the brilliant military strategist Ulysses S. Grant. A modest and unassuming man, Grant never lost a battle, leading the Union to victory over the Confederacy during the Civil War, ultimately becoming president of the reunited states. Grant revolutionized military warfare by creating new leadership strategies and by integrating new technologies in classical military strategy. In this compelling biography, Mosier reveals the man behind the military legend, showing how Grant's creativity and genius off the battlefield shaped him into one of our nation's greatest military leaders.


What the Critics Say

"Mosier has written the best appraisal of Grant's generalship ever to appear....Mosier has gone farther than anyone in proclaiming Grant to have been a military genius, one who in a number of ways surpassed both Napoleon and Wellington." (Charles Bracelen Flood, author of Grant and Sherman and Lee: The Last Years)
"A solid description of the most effective Union general. Grant has been consistently underestimated and Mosier helps correct that." (Newt Gingrich)

Worthy biograhpy

One for the historians. It certainly helps to have read Grant's Memoirs before coming to this. The narration is fine and the author wastes no time in setting the tone for the book; praise for Grant, at times almost gushingly so. The author makes continued use of comparing Grant to Wellington and Napolean in order for us to appreciate his acheivements. Its a technique that works well but does begin to grate after the fifth or sixth use.
John Mosier has written an acurrate and enjoyable assessment of Grant the General. The major downfall of the book is the author's strange ommission to skip over alot of the action after Grant took charge of all the Union armies.
