I found it to be extremely informative on Abraham Lincoln's personal struggles during his presidency, especially with regards to the several Generals he employed during the Civil War. Besides focusing on the war, it gives great insight into his personal life, how he managed all the difficult personalities surrounding him during his presidency, and how his belief and faith in God was further strengthened as the war progressed. It left me wanting to know more about him. Donald manages to create an impressive historical work, but also a very compassionate, understandable picture of one of our greatest leaders.
