Review:

"Few historians write as well as McPherson, and none evoke the sound of battle with greater clarity. . . . McPherson draws on almost fifty years of research to present a cogent and concise narrative of how Lincoln, working against enormous odds, saved the United States of America."
-Jean Edward Smith, "The New York Times Book Review"

"It is hard to do justice in a short review to how convincingly and compellingly McPherson narrates Lincoln's simultaneous mastery of the political, strategic and moral challenge of his historical moment."
-Tim Rutten, "Los Angeles Times"

"Masterful. . . . Destined to become a classic."
-Jay Winik, "The Boston Globe"

"The definitive portrait of Lincoln as war leader."
-"The Washington Post"

Book Description:

This is a rough cut edition and as such is produced with uneven edges. Please note that this is a design feature and not a defect.
