Reviews - What do customers think about Ulysses S. Grant: Politician?

Outdated, but with a caveat  Feb 19, 2004
Grant's Presidency has undergone significant revisionism in the past several years. Hesseltine's book was published in 1937, when Grant's reputation was at a low ebb. In addition, Hesseltine was morbidly anti-Grant and produced a book of extraordinary one-sidedess regarding USG's time in the White House. One can only wonder why this book has been republished, considering it is grossly out of date. It is also full of condescending, insulting and inaccurate characterizations of Grant, and plodding in the extreme. It's one of the more famously badly written books on Grant and is the subject of much ridicule by those unfortunate enough to have read it.

Here's an example of Hesseltine's literary style: "Ulysses S. Grant was a loser. Even dogs didn't like him." Hello, Hesseltine: Grant won the civil war, so much for your "loser" tag.

The one bright spot is that Hesseltine does include a chapter on Grant's personality and private life. This is a surprisingly accurate and refreshing look at Grant. Hesseltine throws considerable light on Grant as a human being and the results are pleasing. This one chapter, however, does not rescue the remainder of the book. The rest of the it is snide and quite mind-numbingly boring. Avoid this tripe at all hazards.
