The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant : The Complete Annotated Edition Paperback / softback

Edited by John F. Marszalek


Ulysses Grant's memoirs, sold door-to-door by former Union soldiers, were once as ubiquitous in American households as the Bible.

Mark Twain and Henry James hailed them as great literature, and countless presidents credit Grant with influencing their own writing.

This celebrated annotated edition has introduced a new generation of readers to an American classic. "This fine volume leaps straight onto the roster of essential reading for anyone even vaguely interested in Grant and the Civil War.

The book is deeply researched, but it introduces its scholarship with a light touch that never interferes with the reader's enjoyment of Grant's fluent narrative."-Ron Chernow, author of Grant"What gives this peculiarly reticent book its power?

Above all, authenticity... Grant's style is strikingly modern in its economy."-T.

J. Stiles, New York Times"It's been said that if you're going to pick up one memoir of the Civil War, Grant's is the one to read.

Similarly, if you're going to purchase one of the several annotated editions of his memoirs, this is the collection to own, read, and reread."-Library Journal"Provides leadership lessons that can be obtained nowhere else...

Ulysses Grant in his Memoirs gives us a unique glimpse of someone who found that the habit of reflection could serve as a force multiplier for leadership."-Thomas E.
