Summary

Since it was first published in 1952,Lincoln and His Generalshas remained one of the definitive accounts of Lincolnrs"s wartime leadership. In it T. Harry Williams dramatizes Lincolnrs"s long and frustrating search for an effective leader of the Union Army and traces his transformation from a politician with little military knowledge into a master strategist of the Civil War. Explored in depth are Lincolnrs"s often fraught relationships with generals such as McClellan, Pope, Burnside, Hooker, Fremont, and of course, Ulysses S. Grant. In this superbly written narrative, Williams demonstrates how Lincolnrs"s persistent "meddling" into military affairs was crucial to the Northern war effort and utterly transformed the presidentrs"s role as commander-in-chief.
