Críticas:

"An admirably planned and executed work which well fulfills the author's expressed hope that it will contribute both to the history and to the understanding of the American system."
American Historical Review
"The author's conclusions about Lincoln's war strategy are sometimes controversial, but his presentation is convincing. As a scholar Mr. Williams has drawn his facts from fundamental sources, and as a story-teller he displays a craftsmanship that holds the reader in suspense even when he knows exactly how the incident ends."
The New York Times
"It is an able and a fascinating book that Mr. Williams has given us. Although it presents the thesis of Lincoln's superior strategic grasp, it is not an argumentative volume. Rather, it is a full-bodied, swift-paced narrative....The reader will gain as clear and shrewd an overall comprehension of the Northern effort from this volume as from any other in print. And most readers will close the book, we

Reseña del editor:

Since it was first published in 1952, Lincoln and His Generals has remained one of the definitive accounts of Lincoln’s wartime leadership. In it T. Harry Williams dramatizes Lincoln’s long and frustrating search for an effective leader of the Union Army and traces his transformation from a politician with little military knowledge into a master strategist of the Civil War. Explored in depth are Lincoln’s often fraught relationships with generals such as McClellan, Pope, Burnside, Hooker, Fremont, and of course, Ulysses S. Grant. In this superbly written narrative, Williams demonstrates how Lincoln’s persistent “meddling” into military affairs was crucial to the Northern war effort and utterly transformed the president’s role as commander-in-chief.
