He supplies fascinating details on the crisis over Fort Sumter and the relentless office seekers who plagued Lincoln. He introduces listeners to the president's battles with hostile newspaper editors and his quarrels with incompetent field commanders. Burlingame also interprets Lincoln's private life, discussing his marriage to Mary Todd, the untimely death of his son, Willie, to disease in 1862, and his recurrent anguish over the enormous human costs of the war.

Michael Burlingames autobiography of Abraham Lincoln is surely the best and most painstaking account of the world's foremost stateman. It is long, very long but never dull and utterly brilliant.
A fitting tribute to the genius of its subject.

Sloppy Narration so won't buy the other volume
Mispronunciations of some proper names, e.g NabuSco for Nabucco. Diction sometimes obscures meaning. Book itself as reviewed by Amazon reviewers. I regret using a credit to buy this.
