Personal Memoirs Of Ulysses S Grant

by Ulysses S. Grant, Personal Memoirs Of Ulysses S Grant Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Personal Memoirs Of Ulysses S Grant book, Completed just days before his death and hailed by Mark Twain as "the most remarkable work of its kind since the Commentaries of Julius Caesar," this is the now-legendary autobiography of ULYSSES SIMPSON GRANT (1822-1885), 18th president of the United States and the Union general who led the North to victory in the Civil War. Though Grant opens with tales of his boyhood, his education at West Point, and his early military career in the Mexican-American war of the 1840s, it is Grant's intimate observations on the conduct of the Civil War, which make up the bulk of the work, that have made this required reading for history students, military strategists, and Civil War buffs alike. This unabridged edition features all the material that was originally published in two volumes in 1885 and 1886, including maps, illustrations, and the text of Grant's July 1865 report to Washington on the state of the armies under his command.

Personal Memoirs

by Ulysses S. Grant, Personal Memoirs Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Personal Memoirs book, "One of the most unflinching studies of war in our literature." --William McFeeley Among the autobiographies of great military figures, Ulysses S. Grant's is certainly one of the finest, and it is arguably the most notable literary achievement of any American president: a lucid, compelling, and brutally honest chronicle of triumph and failure. From his frontier boyhood to his heroics in battle to the grinding poverty from which the Civil War ironically "rescued" him, these memoirs are a mesmerizing, deeply moving account of a brilliant man, told with great courage as he reflects on the fortunes that shaped his life and his character. Written under excruciating circumstances (as Grant was dying of throat cancer), encouraged and edited from its very inception by Mark Twain, it is a triumph of the art of autobiography. The books in the Modern Library War series have been chosen by series editor Caleb Carr according to the significance of their subject matter, their contribution to the field of military history, and their literary merit.

The Complete Personal Memoirs Of Ulysses S Grant

by Ulysses S. Grant, The Complete Personal Memoirs Of Ulysses S Grant Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Complete Personal Memoirs Of Ulysses S Grant book, General Grant's personal memoirs are a must read for all Civil War buffs and those even remotely interested in history. This book, which includes both Volume I and II, articulately spells out the military career of one of the United States' greatest generals. Grant's memoirs are well-written, thoughtful, insightful, and offer more than a glimpse into the mind of U.S. Grant. Volume I opens with a heartfelt preface where Grant explains how his diminishing health pushed him to complete this work and "asking no favor but hoping (his remarks) will meet the approval of the reader." They most definitely do. Following the preface, the reader is given a (very) short review of his early childhood, life at West Point, and early Army life. The next one hundred pages are dedicated to the Mexican War followed by his resignation from the military and civilian life in Illinois. The remainder of Volume I and all of Volume II extensively deal with the war between the states. Volume I (written before Grant realized he was critically ill) is rich in detail of the various military campaigns and his ascension through the military ranks. Volume II hurls the reader into the conflict, reads rapidly, and is rife with Grant's personal observations and insights. This second volume picks up where the first left off--following Vicksburg to the campaigns in Tennessee to the Battle of the Wilderness to Sherman's March to the Sea to the Battle of Franklin right up to Appomattox and all the events of April and May 1865. These campaigns are told from the commanding general's perspective with great overview and detail. However, what really makes Volume II special are all the personal observations and insightful comments about those Grant served with and against. Grant is thoughtful and displays much about himself as this great book draws to a close. An eloquently written, detailed, first-person account of the Civil War that offers much to those who read it.

Trinker Cowboys Sonderlinge

by Ronald D. Gerste, Trinker Cowboys Sonderlinge Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Trinker Cowboys Sonderlinge book, Amerikas ungewöhnlichste Präsidenten Unterhaltsam und zugleich höchst informativ beleuchtet Ronald D. Gerste eine unbekannte Seite der US-Geschichte: das Leben skurriler, bemerkenswerter, spleeniger und mitunter auch tragischer Präsidenten der USA. Zugleich gibt er überraschende Einblicke in die bisher wenig bekannten Seiten des wichtigsten Amtes der Welt und seiner Inhaber. Amerika war schon immer »great«. Nicht erst heutzutage konnten Männer mit manchmal sehr ungewöhnlichen Biographien ins Weiße Haus gelangen. In diesem spannenden, amüsanten und auch nachdenklichen Buch werden 13 dieser Präsidenten wieder lebendig, allesamt Individualisten, die fast alle weitab vom gängigen Politikertyp agierten und die dennoch das Amt prägten, in ihm scheiterten, mitunter aber sehr erfolgreich waren. Wir begegnen dem einzigen Präsidenten, der eigenhändig einen anderen Mann erschossen hat (Andrew Jackson). Wir begleiten einen Bücherwurm, der sich selbst zum Cowboy und Macho trimmte (Theodore Roosevelt). Wir sehen einen Mann, der im Berufsleben gescheitert war – und plötzlich über den Einsatz der Atombombe entscheiden muss (Harry Truman) und wir verfolgen den Aufstieg eines zutiefst misstrauischen Menschen, der sich von einer Welt von Feinden umgeben sah und schließlich vom höchsten Amt zurück treten musste, als einziger Präsident (Richard Nixon). Eine verblüffende und außergewöhnliche Porträtgalerie der sonderbarsten Männer im mächtigsten Amt der Welt.

Bereits heute werden mit ihm Ariane-Raketen ins Weltall geschossen und in Zukunft könnte er in Düsenflugzeugen das Kerosin ersetzen. Seine günstigen Eigenschaften als Speichermedium prädestinieren den Wasserstoff zum klimaneutralen Energieträger der Zukunft. Doch statt diese Technologie mit Hochdruck voranzutreiben, werden weiterhin Pipelines für Öl und Gas gelegt und durch giftiges Fracking noch das letzte Quäntchen Öl und Gas aus dem Bauch der Erde gepresst. Timm Kochs Analyse der Wasserstofftechnologie erklärt anschaulich den neuesten Stand der Technik und liefert überzeugende Argumente, wie Wasserstoff zum Zukunftsretter werden kann.
