Topic - Flood'S "Grant
The "Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant," covering Grant's years as commanding general of the Union Army during the Civil War and his two-term presidency, has been justifiably acclaimed as one of the best books of its genre, on a par with Julius Caesar's "Commentaries." The back story of the memoirs - a cancer-stricken man writing to stave off financial ruin for his wife - makes his work even more compelling. It is this story that drives Charles Bracelen Flood's "Grant's Final Victory."
Grant did have research assistants, but he wrote every word in the book.
