Ulysses S. Grant's two-volume autobiography includes detailed personal writings covering his life from his earliest days through to the end of the Civil War. The truest first-person account of the war that split the nation. Especially interesting are his insights he offers describing the officers, his men and the tactics he used during the many battles. This volume, over 600 pages, offers all of the maps and drawings Grant refers to in his writings. And while Grant does not discuss his presidency, he probably was considering a third volume, but he died five days after he penned the final words here.

An incredible resource! You can not get a better civil war source than a first person account from General Grant himself. Highly recommended!
Unfortunately, the margins in this book are set way too wide. On the nook 1e, each line contains maybe 1-2 words with margins set very wide. On the iPod touch, each line contains a single letter. I have heard that these memoirs are excellent, but would not recommend this edition unless/until the margins are fixed. I'll write to BN customer service and if the problem is fixed, I will update my review.
Extremely informative. Great resource. Now that the publisher has reformated the book (thankfully) I would highly recommend this historical treasure.
