Ulysses S. Grant is often accused of being a cold-hearted butcher of his troops. In Ulysses S. Grant: A Victor, Not a Butcher, historian Edward H.

Publisher's Summary

Ulysses S. Grant is often accused of being a cold-hearted butcher of his troops. In Ulysses S. Grant: A Victor, Not a Butcher, historian Edward H. Bonekemper III proves that Grant's casualty rates actually compared favorably with those of other Civil War generals. His perseverance, decisiveness, moral courage, and political acumen place him among the greatest generals of the Civil War - indeed, of all military history. Bonekemper proves that it was no historical accident that Grant accepted the surrender of three entire Confederate armies and won the Civil War. Bonekemper ably silences Grant's critics and restores Grant to the heroic reputation he so richly deserves.

    "Excellent book - ridiculous narration"

    This is a good overall repudiation of the butcher myth for the layman. Fed and nourished by the Southern apologists for the inept General Lee, the butcher blanket was thrown over Grant by Northern Copperheads in an attempt to defeat Lincoln at the polls in 1864. Great book. 5 stars except for the - POOR narration.
    Antietam is pronounced Auntie- eat'em. Seriously. Almost made me wreck the car the first time he mispronounced it, it was so ear shattering. I had to stop and think of what he was saying and it was in the correct context. There are other examples but this is the most jarring. O, and Mono-casey for Monocacy. Okay, I'm from Maryland, but jeesh. And Bullavar for Bolivar? Who edits this stuff?
