Grant and Sherman - Charles Bracelen Flood
Grant and Sherman - Charles Bracelen Flood. That was Grant as he lived in Galena on the eve of the Civil War-an ordinary-looking man of thirty-eight, five feet eight inches tall and weighing 135 pounds, somewhat stooped and with a short brown beard, a quiet man who smoked a pipe and by then had some false teeth. He had never wanted a military career: he went to West Point only because his autocratic father, who had gotten him a congressional appointment to the academy without consulting him, insisted that he go.

Flood also gives wonderful glimpses of the touching lifelong romance between Grant and his beloved Julia. The story of her failure to get a surgical correction for her mis-aligned eyes, and of Grant's declaration of his love for her precisely as she was, will move all but the most callous readers. At the same time, Flood doesn't shy away from the ugly sides of Grant or Sherman.
Authors: Charles Bracelen Flood. Grant and Sherman’s Western Theater of War 1861-1863. As soon as real war begins, new men, heretofore unheard of, will emerge from obscurity, equal to any occasion. William Tecumseh Sherman, six weeks before Bull Run. I knew wherever I was that you thought of me, and if I got in a tight place you would come if alive. Sherman to Grant, March 10, 1864, summing up their successful Western campaigns. But what next? I suppose it will be safe if I leave General Grant and yourself to decide.
"We were as brothers," William Tecumseh Sherman said, describing his relationship with Ulysses S. Grant. They were incontestably two of the most important figures in the Civil War, but until now there has been no book about their victorious partnership and the deep friendship that made it possible.
Heeding the call to save the Union, each struggled past political hurdles to join the war effort. Taking each other's measure at the Battle of Shiloh, they began their unique collaboration. Often together under fire on the war's great battlefields, they shared the demands of family life, the heartache of loss, and supported each other in the face of mudslinging by the press and politicians. Their growing mutual admiration and trust set the stage for the crucial final year of the war and the peace that would follow.
Moving and elegantly written, Grant and Sherman is a historical page-turner: a gripping portrait of two men whose friendship, forged on the battlefield, would win the Civil War.
