Ulysses Grant and Robert E. Lee have become iconic figures in history for, perhaps, all the wrong reasons. Grant was a brilliant administrator and man of action while Lee could not delegate well and he did not control his commanders well. However, both had an extraordinary sense of duty. Grant’s duty was to the United States and Lee’s duty was to Virginia and his idea of God. Grant mobilized and won with the united efforts of the north while Lee struggled to maintain strength with the states’ rights confederacy fragmented over multiple issues. The book is a fascinating biography of these two men, the Civil War, and leadership styles. Listen to the author present his work.
