really liked it

The story of missed opportunities for want of personal temperament, good judgment and persistence. McClellan is really the focus of the book, Lincoln a close second. A place in the pantheon of great generals was McClellan's if he would pursue it. He chose most often to blame others and waste a great deal of time in concocting a theater of blame toward Lincoln and other Washington types. A cautionary tale for leaders who seem to be stumped when they should gaining ground and victory.
