  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 12/1/2009

    " A small condensed biography of the Civil War General and President. He was so popular he didn't even campaign once. His name was changed when he went to West Point by accident and it stuck. His legal name was Hiram Ulysses Grant. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ulysses | 11/7/2009

    " Admirably brief, but pretty uninformative as a result. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hargrove | 3/10/2009

    " This is an excellent example of the Eminent Lives series from HaperCollins. Korda provides a succinct capsulized version of the Civil War as well as the man who helped defeat the Confederacy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Armen | 6/23/2008

    " Good and very readable; but somehow I find the lack of proper footnotes/endnotes (apart from the ones that formed the author's commentary) to detract from this work. If I had seen footnotes I'd know whether or not I should take what he says as fact or not. "
