This review is from: Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S.Grant (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
Fascinating book. Grant was not only a good general he was perceptive and could write well, too. I would have liked to have had another few chapters about his exploits as President. Perhaps he would have written more if he had been allowed to live longer. It is typical of the man that he struggled on and finished the book even though he knew he was near death. I was amused at the way troops on both sides spent so much time ripping up and repairing each other's railway systems - almost light relief to the carnage elsewhere.
