John S. D. Eisenhower discusses Agent Of Destiny: The Life And Times Of General Winfield Scott.

From renowned Historian and son of President Dwight D. Eisenhower comes a biography of Winfield Scott, the towering commander who was instrumental in shaping America‚Äôs borders and who created the modern U. S. military. 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 America's top soldier at the start of the Civil War. From Scott's early life as a lawyer to his much-lamented death in 1866, this finely rendered portrait traces his intimate involvement in the expansion 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. Filled with drama and personal detail, AGENT OF DESTINY achieves that rare combination of rich narrative and serious scholarship that distinguishes the best biographies. —from the publisher's website (timspalding)… (more)
