In this addition to the Palgrave 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 re-united 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.

Professional reviews

"Aside from Grant, the author mentions dozens of military leaders' names without even a parenthetical remark about who they were. Mosier uses the names of Civil War battles without providing any context. He also makes some outrageous statements: "The leading generals of the Civil War were all men of great talent." Brian Emerson has the annoying habit of dropping his voice at the end of sentences, demoting the last word or two to a mumble. He also puts a three- to four-second pause between sentences, thereby breaking the cadence and assigning undue importance to each. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
