Grant

Capsule Review

Grant was an admirable figure: animalistic in his approach to earning a victory for the Unions in the Civil War – a noble war, fought to limit expansion of slavery from only seven states, he followed up the win by becoming the 18th President of the United States. Although, he wasn’t as remarkable of a President as he was a military general, Grant’s morality was always in the right direction; he was an honest figure, he had good military strategy and the remarkability doesn’t stop there – Grant was actually made leader of a battlefield because there wasn’t anyone within sight in the military, with a West Point background. The book is not heavily reliant on analysis, trusting original letters and other such materials instead to do the talking of a very unlikely hero. It’s an important piece of biographical work for the little details into an inspiring military general’s life, from the measly breakfast he ate of cucumber in vinegar during a battle to his raging problems with alcohol.
