    On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry. Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war.

    Would you try another book from Doris Kearns Goodwin and/or Suzanne Toren?

    I have been very interested in the Civil war for a long time and have admired Lincoln. This book was very one sided and written from a very liberal point of view. I got a few hours into the book before I decided I had had enough. Really did not appreciate being told what to think, or that the south was bad in every way. If you are a leftist "intellectual" then you will like this book, it will reinforce all of your notions.

  • SEAL Warrior: Death in the Dark: Vietnam 1968-1972

    The old battle tactics were useless for the U.S. soldiers in Vietnam, who were fighting a guerrilla war on foreign soil for the first time in American history. With the depth and honesty of Steel My Soldiers' Hearts, SEAL Warrior sheds light on the operations of the SEAL teams in Vietnam and shows how the SEALs laid the foundation for the modern guerrilla warfare that is used today.

    What made the experience of listening to SEAL Warrior the most enjoyable?

    A good story from the Vietnam war written by someone who was there. I found it to be entertaining and a bit different from the usual war story.
