-

A major new biography of the Civil War general and American president, by the author of the New York Times bestseller, A. Lincoln.

The dramatic story of one of America's greatest and most misunderstood military leaders and presidents, this is a major new interpretation of Ulysses S. Grant.

Based on 7 years of research with primary documents, some of them never tapped before, this is destined to become the Grant biography of our times.

REVIEWS

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

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.
