"Garfield's military career, the congressional years, the Presidency, receive thorough attention and evaluation, and one of the delights of this massive biography is that Peskin writes so well ...

9 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winfield Scott (1786-1866) was arguably the premier soldier of his era. More than anyone else, he was responsible for the professionalization of the U.S. Army during his long career (1807-61)." "Allan Peskin's research in the National Archives unearthed records from the War Department that support his portrayal of General Scott as a forward-looking managerial officer who accurately foresaw the coming of dramatic changes in technology and business principles for the military." "Winfield Scott and the Profession of Arms is a balanced and thorough biography of this military figure. Scholars and military historians will welcome its significant contributions to the literature."--Jacket
