Publisher's Summary

Lincoln and Grant is an intimate dual portrait of President Abraham Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant: their ordinary Western backgrounds, their early struggles to succeed, and their history-making relationship during the Civil War. Though generally remembered by history as two very different personalities, the soft-spoken Lincoln and often-crude Grant in fact shared similar drive and determination, as this in-depth character study illustrates.

Head on.

The best arguement for Grant being what he was, and not for what the "Lost Cause" paints him to be.

A flawed but very good book

The author is becoming one of my favorite authors on the subject of the Civil War. This book does not disappoint. In his evaluation of the Lincoln Grant partnership, Bonekemper shows how Lincoln and Grant grew to become the best of partners and fine friends. I was particularly pleased at the author's appreciation of General George Thomas, who often is unappreciated by fans of Grant and Sherman. George Thomas was one of the few men that Ulysses Grant consistently mistreated. This book loses its fifth star because of the seemingly endless repetition of phrases and observations, which adds at least an hour to its run time. The reader of this book did a fine professional job.
