Performed in a mature, elegant voice and without flair by Peter Johnson - himself a Grant scholar, writer, and lauded audiobook performer - these poignant and often sad memoirs are the final exertions of a dying warrior whose hard-won conclusion rings a note of optimism that someday Federals and Confederates may live together in peace. Have we?

Worth your time
Interesting read for the Civil War buff. The descriptions of battles gets dry at times. You do get a clear sense of how Grant's mind worked and why he did things the way he did. It made me re-evaluate my opinions of some of the Union generals, especially George Thomas, whom Grant characterizes as a procrastinator.

Must read for Civil War buffs
What made the experience of listening to The Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant, Part 2 the most enjoyable?
Yes, who better to write a book about the Civil War than Grant. I Recommend all three volumes of his book.
