Read full description of the books:
This is a part of a trilogy. The first work, "Captain Sam Grant," was authored by Lloyd Lewis. Unfortunately, he died before he was able to complete the full biography (indeed, he died before this volume was actually published). As the publisher notes, though, Lewis had amassed a great deal of information. Finally, well-known historian Bruce Catton agreed to complete the trilogy (His two works are "Grant Moves South" and "Grant Takes Command"). The three works together provide a good biography of U. S. Grant.
However, Lewis' book is nicely wrought. It traces his life in some detail from birth to his sojourn in Galena, Illinois, after a checkered military career (his valor in the assault on Mexico City during the Mexican War was a high point of his early career) and failed business efforts in Missouri.
It provides an interesting view of Grant the person. As portrayed here, he is a modest, decent human being who sometimes made bad decisions, who experienced some poor luck, but who was dogged enough to continue. The book ends with his taking command of an Illinois regiment.
The next two volumes continue the story of Grant, with the end coming at the Grand Review of the Union armies in Washington, D. C. in 1865. But the first volume lays the groundwork, sets the stage for the older, more successful Grant.
Lewis' book is well worth reading for those interested in Grant.
