VINTAGE COLLECTIBLE Civil War Military History Biography 1st Edition 1st Printing In Dust Jacket. "George B. McClellan: The Young Napoleon" by Stephen Sears. HARDCOVER 1988 Ticknor & Fields 1st Edition, 1st Printing with numbers 1-10 on copyright page. Exactly as shown in listing scan(s). Nice Collectible 1st Edition 1st Printing hardcover copy IN DUST JACKET.

"By age 35, General George B. McClellan (1826–1885), designated the "Young Napoleon," was the commander of all the Northern armies. He forged the Army of the Potomac into a formidable battlefield foe, and fought the longest and largest campaign of the time as well as the single bloodiest battle in the nation's history. Yet, he also wasted two supreme opportunities to bring the Civil War to a decisive conclusion. In 1864 he challenged Abraham Lincoln as the Democratic candidate for the presidency. Neither an indictment nor an apologia, this biography draws entirely on primary sources to create a splendidly incisive portrait of this charismatic, controversial general who, for the first eighteen months of the conflict, held the fate of the union in his unsteady hands."
