MEN OF FIRE Grant, Forrest, and the Campaign That Decided the Civil War

by | Read by Tom Weiner

History • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Nathan Bedford Forrest both hated to lose. In the battle for Fort Donelson, Tennessee, in February 1892, they fought not only each other but their own fellow generals, back-and-forth warfare, and miserable conditions. Tom Weiner’s narration reflects the accuracy and detail of Hurst’s research. Weiner has a newscaster’s timbre and delivery. He pauses before quotations and gets into the character of whoever is speaking—Southerner, Midwesterner, country boy, officer. Listening is like getting messages from the past. History buffs should love this chronicle of the lesser-known western war. The victorious Grant became president; Forrest went on to help found the Ku Klux Klan.
