Grant wins the war : decision at Vicksburg by James R Arnold( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead, in the riskiest and greatest decision of his military career, Grant resolved to act alone against Vicksburg. James R. Arnold proposes that Grant's victory at Vicksburg is worthy of comparison to those of Napoleon in its planning and execution. Always prepared for multiple contingencies, the general kept his field army well concentrated within a few hours' march of each other, while keeping Confederate General Pemberton - trying to counter Grant's shrewd troop movements - continually off balance. The decisive meeting came on May 16, at Champion Hill. Bringing history to exciting life, James R. Arnold offers a penetrating analysis of Grant's strategies and actions. His carefully researched chronicle approaches these epic events from a unique and well-rounded perspective: What did Grant know ... and think? What did his opponents know ... and think? What was the true state of affairs?
