More About Lincoln and His Generals by T. Harry Williams
 
 
 
Overview

Since it was first published in 1952, Lincoln and His Generals has remained one of the definitive accounts of Lincoln s wartime leadership. In it T. Harry Williams dramatizes Lincoln 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 Lincoln 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 Lincoln s persistent meddling into military affairs was crucial to the Northern war effort and utterly transformed the president s role as commander-in-chief.
