    Grant Kindle ç Paperback grant kindle, Grant KindleI was raised in North CarolinaMy great grandfather was captured at the bloody angle at Spotsylvania Courthouse and thus had the traitional southern notion that Grant won most of his acclaim by being better supplied and having so many troops than his opponents I have always been a history buff having read most of Mr Chernow’s previous books and many but this book changed my mind on a number of issues and convinced me that I had not given Mr Grant the acclaim he is due The appropriate analogy I believeis that if Mr Lincoln was the engineer driving the ship of state during the war Mr Grant was certainly the train plugging through and getting the work done This book also disabused me in it’s 1000 pages of my previous notion that states rights had mu

    Grant Kindle ç Paperback grant kindle, Grant KindleRon Chernow has written a magisterial but eminently readable 959 page account of the life of Ulysses S Grant the Union military genius who won the Civil War and subseuently the two time President who championed the freedom of the former slave population of the South through his policy of Reconstruction Grant emerges as a flawed individual who battled a liking for alcohol and who was overly naïve in his judgement on people particularly those looking to use him for financial or political gain but whose legacy to the US is immense parallel to that of his political mentor Abraham Lincoln This is a superb biography which has been extensively researched yet which reads like a novel Thoroughly recommended

    Grant Kindle ç Paperback grant kindle, Grant KindleThis biography of Grant is a weighty tome that demands an investment of time that few biographies normally reuire I’m still unsure if it was worth itThis covers his entire life and the first half where it explores his childhood and his years as a civil war general were fascinating You see why he was respected so much and discover the innovative methods he developed to fight and win the war for the north The part of this book that covers his presidential years was extremely dry and where the author could recount an incident with brevity he often didn’t It became ridiculous to read of events where it became almost like ‘he said this th
