"Grant" by Mitchell Yockelson is one of the books in "The Generals" series. This particular book follows the life of Ulysses S. Grant, and it absolutely fascinating. This book begins with his early years, showing us what a young Ulysses would have looked like. The book follows Grant through his training at West Point, as well as the earlier years of his career. The book chronicles Grant's battles of the Civil War in a way that makes you feel as if you are watching it happen. From Belmont to Shiloh, to Vicksburg we see Ulysses S. Grant forge ahead in battle. What I really loved about this book was that it gives insight into the life of one of the most famous generals, and this book really gives him more of a human element, rather than thinking of him solely as a soldier. I thought this book was very interesting, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in history - great writing coupled with a very interesting man.

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.
