      Slightly. I think many tend to dismiss Grant as a “butcher”, a commander who needlessly committed to possible slaughter. People tend to use the Battles of Shiloh and Cold Harbor as examples. Yet, Grant was not the only Civil War general who led tr.   His first book was called War Lords of Washington and I forget whether it was contemporary to WWII, but his first about Grant was a short volume titled U. S. Grant and the American Military Tradition, which I don't now remember whether I read or not back in high school in the 's when I first discovered his books.

    Charles Bruce Catton (October 9, – Aug ) was an American historian and journalist, best known for his books on the American Civil War. Known as a narrative historian, Catton specialized in popular history, featuring colorful characters and historical vignettes, in addition to the basic facts, dates, and analyses.   The History of U.S. Intervention And The 'Birth Of The American Empire' Journalist Stephen Kinzer's book, True Flag, explains how the Spanish-American War launched an ongoing debate about America.

      Grant's magnanimity in victory is still an American tradition. The book contains some historical errors which other reviewers have pointed out and I will not belabor here. This prevents me from awarding 5 stars. I am happy to find a book that appreciates this good, decent, honest everyman, great general and undervalued president/5(4). Badeau had been Grant’s military secretary during the final year of the Civil War, and some time after the war he had written a three-volume Military History of Ulysses S. Grant. This has been a standard reference work ever since, but it had not been a great commercial success and now it occurred to Badeau that it would sink into the shadows.
