In Abraham Lincoln and Civil War America, historian William Gienapp provides a remarkably concise, up-to-date, and vibrant biography of the most revered figure in United States history.While the heart of the book focuses on the Civil War, Gienapp begins with a finely etched portrait of Lincoln's early life, from pioneer farm boy, to politician and lawyer in Springfield, to his stunning election as sixteenth president of the United States. We see how Lincoln grew during hisyears in office, how he developed a keen aptitude for military strategy and displayed enormous skill in dealing with his generals, and also how his war strategy evolved from a desire to preserve the Union to emancipation and total war.Gienapp shows how Lincoln's early years influenced his skills as commander-in-chief and also demonstrates that throughout the stresses of the war years, Lincoln's basic character shone through: his good will and fundamental decency, his remarkable self-confidence matched with genuine humility,his immunity to the passions and hatreds the war spawned, his extraordinary patience, and his timeless eloquence.A former backwoodsman and country lawyer, Abraham Lincoln rose to become one of our greatest presidents. This biography offers a vivid account of Lincoln's dramatic ascension to the pinnacle of American history.… (mer)

A capable short biography. I bought it because I wanted to read about Lincoln and couldn't imagine myself taking the massive DH Donald on vacation. Not as much on Lincoln the man as I would have liked, and more blow-by-blow on the civil war, which, while fascinating, is not what I look for in biography. Lincoln is really a miracle: how was this man possible?

A brief biography of Lincoln. Does not go into great depths, but makes for a nice overview. I wanted to know more about his personal life in the white house, but that was not in the scope of this particular book. Luckily, there are hundreds of books on the man and none of them cover everything. ( )

Read for school. Highly addictive, very readable bio of one of the most awesome American Presidents who ever lived. ( )
