Ronald White Jr "has done yeoman's work to restore this good man to the American memory and, in the process, has done our country a great and timely service. * Chicago Tribune * Like Grant himself, this book will have staying power. * The Wall Street Journal * You've heard the name, obviously, now read about the man with the iconic name, probably one of the most famous names in American history, and celebrated in some style in Mr White's new biography. Superlative. * Books Monthly * There have been a lot of great military histories out this year. My favourite soldier biography is Ronald C White's monumental American Ulysses: A Life of Ulysses S Grant" - Alexander Watson * BBC History Magazine - Book Reviews Editor *
