Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom, James M. McPherson—acclaimed as America's greatest living Civil War historian—has garnered critical praise for his compelling narrative style. Tried by War brilliantly explores how Abraham Lincoln—struggling with feckless generals, fickle masses, and his own fearful demons—expanded the role of Commander in Chief amidst a war that defined him.
