Charles Bracelen Flood examines the unique story of two military "brothers" who led Union forces in the Civil War. As he unfolds the lives of Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman, Flood reads with a lecturer's tone, but the details of the two extraordinary lives he tracks from their early years to the end of the Civil War are fascinating. Listeners might be distracted by the lack of gravitas in Flood's voice as he quotes Lincoln and other historical figures. In an interview at the end Flood reflects on the rarity of wartime friendships as close as that of Grant and Sherman. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
