George McClellan was seen as self-aggrandizing, with a streak of arrogant stubbornness. He set himself above President Lincoln, whom he privately called "the Gorilla." To "the young Napoleon, " as McClellan's troops dubbed him, abolition was an "accursed doctrine." Fond of conspiracy plots, he insisted that the Lincoln administration had traitorously conspired to set him up for military defeat. Although he constantly anticipated one big, decisive battle that would crush the South, he squandered one military opportunity after another. This biographical portrait is based on primary sources, letters, dispatch books, diaries, and newspapers. ]
