Particularly topical in the year of "Lincoln"
A very easy read (186 pages), and an excellent look at Lincoln as an extremely "hands-on" Commander-In-Chief, who was not at all reluctant to exercise the authority of the office. Excellent descriptions of Lincoln's communications with Generals Halleck, McClellan, and Grant. The next to last chapter ("The Last Lap") refers to episodes portrayed in the movie "Lincoln", where Lincoln has to finesse the proposed peace proposals of a Southern delegation in January of 1865.Was this review helpful?
