Description
Shortly after losing all of his wealth in an 1884 swindle, Ulysses S. Grant learned that he had terminal throat and mouth cancer. To protect his family from financial hardship, a determined Grant wrote his memoir, completing it just days before his death. As the author of 1864 and Grant and Sherman explains in this history, the magnanimous and conciliatory tone of the former general's book elicited feelings of patriotism and mutual respect in North and South alike, providing a worthy capstone for Grant's career.

"Seldom if ever have I read a book that plunges so deeply—and so masterfully—into the human side of a major historical figure. When that figure is a man as laconic and private as Ulysses S. Grant, the achievement is even more remarkable. Charles Bracelen Flood has combined his talents as a novelist and historian to create an irresistible book."—Thomas Fleming

"They say heroes have no second act, but Grant did, and Flood recalls his fall and rise in a gripping and elegant narrative."—Harold Holzer
