Reviews
"A worthy companion to his magisterial trilogy on Franklin Delano Roosevelt's leadership in World War II, Nigel Hamilton's similar study of Abraham Lincoln (a born politician) and Jefferson Davis (a born soldier) is chock full of vivid character sketches and trenchant analysis, showing how and why these two leaders each came, via different routes during the first year and a half of the Civil War, to make a momentous decision in September 1862--choices that, as Lincoln vs. Davis convincingly argues, fatefully determined the outcome of the conflict."--Michael Burlingame, author of Abraham Lincoln: A Life
"In today's bitterly divided America, ever more of us find ourselves thinking of the fateful moment when this country did divide in two. You will find no better guide for a journey back to that era than expert biographer Nigel Hamilton. He has found a fresh and intriguing way of framing the story in his absorbing tale of the two principal antagonists--and of some remarkable parallels between them."--Adam Hochschild, New York Times bestselling author of Spain in Our Hearts and American Midnight
