Agent Of Destiny: The Life And Times Of General Winfield Scott by John Eisenhower

Here is the powerful story of General Winfield Scott and his amazing march through American history -- as hero of the War of 1812, conqueror of Mexico City, and Abraham Lincolns top soldier at the start of the Civil War. From Scotts early life as a lawyer to his much-lamented death in 1866, this finely rendered portrait traces his intimate involvement in the expansion and consolidation of the Republic as a key agent of Manifest Destiny. It recounts his leading role in transforming the ramshackle U.S. Army into a disciplined and professional fighting force, and follows the spectacular ups and downs of his many reversals of fortune.<P>Filled with drama and personal detail, Agent of Destiny achieves that rare combination of rich narrative and serious scholarship that distinguishes biography at its best.
