Grant: The Man Who Won the Civil WarHardback
This product is available.
General Sam Grant made famous the expression 'unconditional surrender', which is how most of his battles ended -- for his opponents. A hard-drinking soldier in a hard-drinking army, he led the Federal armies to victory, forcing Robert E Lee to surrender the main Confederate army in 1865. Robin Neillands' concise biography takes us from Grant's disasterous pre-war record to his sudden emergence as a general of genius.
