Re:Thomas Overated or Underrated?
Very astute obsevation. If I could take it one step further.
Grant's generalship comes from a school that to me states, "I refuse
to think of failure; I will put all of my energy on success. The
enemy is just as afraid of me as I am of him. I will keep the
intiative and wait for him to make a mistake that I can take
In other words, he was a risk taker. The more the risk, the greater
the potential benefits. Sounds like another general in that forbidden
Which style is right? Depends upon the individual. One style was
right for Thomas; the other style was right for Grant. As far as my
preference, I'll take a little of both, thank you.
