This is the first, comprehensive biography of a man who in 1862 was called upon by President Lincoln to take command of all the federal forces in the war against the South. Halleck was known by the name "Old Brains" and was reputedly the greatest military theorist and scholar of his time. Yet his personality deficits resulted in an abject failure to make decisions during battle that led to the President's eventual loss of confidence and his being supplanted by Ulysses S. Grant. Grant, of course, was ultimately the architect of the North's victory and Halleck was consigned to obscurity. The book is well-written and will sell to people who already have some basic understanding of the war and want to learn more about the personalities and decision-making that charted the North's course of action.
