    " One of the most important works of US history. What he chooses to disclose and the beauty of his writing gives great insight into this flawed and important American. "

    " Really very readable for a memoir 130 years old. Modest of himself, but frank with praise amend condemnation for others. Must read for Civil War and Presidential buffs. "

    " Interesting account of Grant's experiences in the Mexican War and the American Civil War up until the fall of Vicksburg. I would have liked to see him address the drinking issues but I guess it's not surprising he did not. A must read for those interested in the ACW. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Lesser | 12/22/2000

    " Surprisingly well written and easy to read. Grant had an amazing memory for names and details in this very personal history covering his career from his early life through the Mexican War and the Civil War (in Volume 1). His views on the Mexican War are especially interesting. "
