An important historical memoir of the Civil War, arguably the most important, and the best thing that Grant ever wrote. General Norman Schwartzkopf has recently called this the finest memoir of war experiences that has ever been penned. As such, it is valuable in its scope, its plain and clear analysis and language, and its broad conclusions about the conduct of the war.This item is in the category "Books & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectible".
