Back-water Generals: Forrest and Grant
The focus of this insightful book is not about the battlefield accomplishments of these well know generals, it’s about two elite military commanders that came form nowhere, and how they rose to prominence. This 2012 book signing event at Landmark Booksellers, was author Jack Hurst’s commentary of what may have molded these two opposing American Civil War generals. Grant and Forrest had much in common: humble beginnings and many early challenges in life.
