Well written and very interesting describes Personal Memoirs by US Grant. The book does not attempt to make Grant look good, rather it is more like a military after action report where he explains what has taken place. He includes his decision making process for many of the major events. My esteem for President Grant was greatly enhanced by reading this book. It is must reading for any civil war or biography lover.
