Description
Despite having risen from obscurity to become an undeniably effective general in the American Civil War, Ulysses S. Grant has often been disparaged for his much less successful presidency. The author of Traitor to His Class and American Dreams here reconsiders the received wisdom, suggesting that just as Grant saved the Union on the battlefield, he again came to the rescue during his eight years in office. Two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee H.W. Brands portrays Grant as a man attempting to balance the concerns of North and South, even as he tries to protect the rights of the newly freed slaves and the Native Americans.

"Once again, H. W. Brands has crafted a wonderful portrait of a great leader who endured and prevailed in hours of stress and strain. Brands's U.S. Grant is a compelling figure, a man too often overlooked by history. This book rectifies that with grace and insight."óJon Meacham
