    Grant at Vicksburg MOBI ó Grant at MOBI :Ø grant pdf, vicksburg kindle, Grant at download, Grant at Vicksburg ePUBI didn't like this book uite as much as I thought I was going to like it The writing is a little disjointed as if it was several individual pieces of writing imperfectly grafted together rather than a smooth narrative There are a few jarring discontinuities such as a chapter that goes in depth on the difficult relationship between Grant and his subordinate McClernand culminating in McClernand's removal; the next chapter picks up the overall story of the campaign earlier on with McClernand still in charge of his corps The reader realizes that the McClernand piece went a bit into the future as it were before returning to the narrative but it's still jarringNoteworthy is a thorough deconstruction of the alleged drinking spree up the Yazoo River though it pays tribute to Brooks D Simpson's Ulysses S Grant Triumph over Adversity 1822 1865 as the true pioneer in that regard It becom

    Grant at Vicksburg MOBI ó Grant at MOBI :Ø grant pdf, vicksburg kindle, Grant at download, Grant at Vicksburg ePUBMy sister used to work for SIU Press and knows of my interest in Civil War history so she used to send me books like this every so often Since I was way behind on my reading goal for 2017 and this looked thin on my shelf I decided to finally pick it upI actually don't know much about the Western theater in the Civil War and I was hoping this was a good place to start But the subject matter was so specific that I still don't feel like I have a big picture view The title says it all this is about Grant at Vicksburg Given that limitation the author does a good job with the story Very detailed but I just feel I would have gotten out of it with better prior knowledge of the siege 25 stars
