"There are many comprehensive books on US History. This one is the best.It is not in-depth , but it is a concise view of US History through some of our best presidents.The footnotes are very fascinating. This is one of the best books I have ever read. The presidents discussed are Washington, Adams, Jackson, Lincoln, TR, FDR, Truman, JFK, and Reagan."
"This book covers the significance of Billy Graham & religion for Presidents Truman to George W. Bush. This book is superb for presidential bios,& the remarkable life of Billy Graham. Praise the Lord for this wonderful work!!""
"This work is the lasest of the Ellis collection. He captures the successes and failures of the American Revolution. This book could be considered a sequel to Founder Brothers. A great read for the devout historian or the casual reader.If only every American understood these great men and their times, America would be greatly benefitted."
"An easy read that describes the magnitude of George Washington. Washington's contributions to the nation get taken for granted. This book provides a fresh realization of why he is our most prominent Founding Father."
"I was an anti-Hamilton before reading this book. After reading it, Hamilton is one of my favorites. This book is very lengthy, but there is not one dull page in it. It describes every facet of AH's life and thoughts. From birth until death, Chernow captures AH's extraordinary life. A MUST READ! YOU'LL ENJOY IT AND LEARN MORE THAN YOU REALIZE!"
"Goodwin caputures the profoudness of Lincoln and his rivals. This work provides a great amount of knowledge of the 1860 presidential election, the Civil War, and bios of great men such as Seward, Chase, Bates, and Stanton."
"This book covers TR from birth to the presidency. Morris describes & captures TR's amazing life in graphic detail. The reader can feel his youthful pain, hunt in the Dakotas, figth crime in NY, charge up San Juan Hill. A MUST READ!"
"Winik provides very superb "short biographies" within the book of Lincoln, Grant, Sherman, Davis, Lee, Forrest, and others. This book is the perfect example that studying history provides sage information to the future. Winik's arguments that the war could have lasted an indefinite time are very captivating. Indeed, victory was anything but certain during April 1865."
"This book is part 2 of Morris's work (part 3 is currently being worked on) This work deals with TR's presidency. TR's achievemts as the 26th POTUS is remarkable. Again, his actions and administration is vividly described so that the reader seems as an eye witness."
"A great WWI book!! It displays the political thought of each country involved. JFK studied this book to learn how to deal with the Soviets during the Cuban Missle Crisis as depicted in the movie 13 Days with Kevin Costner."
"This is volume one of a two volume work. This coupled with part 2 is an amazing, heart throbbing social, political, and military history of WWII. Absolutely amazing. I hated to finish them they are sooo good."
"Robert Caro has written the best bio on anyone in political history. Three of the four books of this work have been published. Caro describes everything about LBJ imaginable. I do not like LBJ, but loved reading these books. I read all 3 back to back. Please read and don't let the size discourage you."
