Crucible of Command

Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee--The War They Fought, the Peace They Forged

By William C. Davis

Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee have never before been paired as they are here. In Crucible of Command, William C. Davis, one of America's preeminent historians, presents a thoroughly fresh portrait of these great commanders, revealing their personalities, their character, their ethical and moral compasses, and their political and military worlds as they took each other's measure across the battlefield. The result is history at its finest and one of the great books on the Civil War.
William C. Davis is the author or editor of more than fifty books in the fields of Civil War and Southern history, as well as numerous documentary screenplays. He was the on-camera senior consultant for 52 episodes of the Arts & Entertainment Network/History Channel series “Civil War Journal,” as well as a number of other productions on commercial and public television and the BBC. He has acted as historical consultant for several television and film productions, including “The Blue and the Gray,” “George Washington,” and “The Perfect Tribute.” In September 2013 he retired after thirteen years as Professor of History and Executive Director of the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. He is a three-time winner of the Jefferson Davis Award given for book-length works in Confederate History. His book The Battle of New Market is the basis of the motion picture Field of Lost Shoes currently in production and scheduled for release in May 2014. He is a member of the Advisory Board of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission and serves on several other consultative bodies. He lives near Roanoke, Virginia.
