Retired Brigadier General John S.D. Eisenhower is one of the nation's leading military historians. He has meticulously researched and detailed the life of General Winfield Scott. Winfield, the hero of the War of 1812, conqueror of Mexico City, and Lincoln's top soldier during the first 6 months of the Civil War, was a seminal force in the early expansion of the American republic. In this book the author reviews Scott's life and influence. Scott may have been the hero of two major wars and a star diplomat, but he also had been place before a military court 3 times, convicted once and even suspended from the Army at one time. Scott's troubles seemed created by political ambition but he certainly was a monumental agent of America's destiny.
