Deep in the winter of 1862 on the Kentucky-Tennessee border, Union Brigadier General Ulysses S. Grant and an obscure Confederate lieutenant colonel named Nathan Bedford Forrest faced off in an epic clash that would transform them both and set the course of the Civil War. AT the battles of Fort Henry and Fort Donelson, horrific combat raged in rain, snow, and sleet. After ten days, Grant won the victory he needed to keep his army and, ultimately, save the Union. On the Confederate side, Forrest emerged from battle with fifteen bullet marks on his coat and a fearsome reputation as a warrior. In Men of Fire, Jack Hurst offers a riveting account of the making of these two great military leaders and the battles that changed the course of the Civil War-and American history. Book jacket.
