Grant's Secret Service: The Intelligence War from Belmont to Appomattox

Grant's Secret Service: The Intelligence War from Belmont to Appomattox Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

William B. Feis offers us the first scholarly examination of the use of military intelligence under Ulysses S. Grants command during the Civil War. Feis makes the new and provocative argument that Grants use of the Army of the Potomacs Bureau of Military Information played a significant role in Lees defeat.

About the Author

William B. Feis is an associate professor of history at Buena Vista University.
