This is a comprehensive, honest, warm and at times amusing account of Grant's life and experiences till the end of the Civil.
At the end of his life Grant writes with a no nonsense and straightforwardness that speaks to the kind of character he was.
The descriptions of battles, why Grant made certain decisions and his opinions of events and commanders are extraordinarily detailed and it's wise to have a map on hand while listening so you can follow the action.
Grant has been largely deified in history but this book takes you back to the essence of the man, a person who never set out to be a hero, but rather, did what was necessary at time.
This book is a total treasure and we and very lucky it exists at all. It's a shame Robert E. Lee never wrote his.
If you're thinking of buying it, do it. You will not regret it.
