About the book:

This is the human, dramatic, & fascinating story of Lincoln as commander in chief of an army at war against its brothers. It is a riveting look at his search for a winning general, & of his own emergence as a master strategist. Here is the Lincoln who bore the whole burden of forging a modern command system that would serve a nation in years to come. Here are the generals whom Lincoln appointed & then rejected: McClellan, Pope, Burnside, Hooker, Buell, Rosecrans, Fremont, Clernand & others. Finally, Ulysses S. Grant appears, the general whom Lincoln trusted above all the rest, & the one to whom he gave much of the power of leadership he had withheld from the others. He chose wisely & well, as it turned out. Reprint of 1952 edition.
