Grant. The battle cost some twenty percent of Grant's troops, but as a result of this engagement he became known as an audacious fighting general. Nathaniel Hughes provides the only full-length tactical study of the battle that catapulted Grant into prominence. Throughout the narrative, Hughes draws sketches of the lives and fates of individual soldiers who fought on both sides, especially of the colorful and enormously dissimilar principal actors, Grant and Polk.Hide synopsis
