About this item

McPherson, the doyen of Civil War historians, offers firm evidence of Lincoln's military effectiveness in this typically well–reasoned, well–presented analysis. Lincoln's commitment to linking policy and strategy made him the most hands–on American commander–in–chief; he oversaw strategy and offered operational advice, much of it shrewd and perceptive. Lincoln may have been an amateur of war, but McPherson successfully establishes him as America's greatest war leader.
