This is a thoroughly disappointing book! The author spends e first interminable minutes droning on about how a Beyoncé concert was held near Grant’s tomb! Really??? A Beyoncé concert???? Good Lord! Next, they chose someone of British extraction to narrate the book about the greatest American general of the Union Army, when the British were aligned with the Confederacy!
Save your money folks and don’t this book. If you wish to read about a Ulysses Grant, either purchase and read his memoirs, or buy Ron Chernow’s book “Grant”.
