This biography of the Union general compares his record to the records of other generals and especially against that of Robert E. Lee. It is the author's thesis that most of Grant's reputation as a butcher blessed with greater resources and unconcerned for the lives of his men was undeserved and developed after the war. Excellent appendices with casualties incurred during all of Grant's campaigns.
