No other narrative account of Abraham Lincoln's life has inspired such widespread acclaim as Lord Charnwood's Abraham Lincoln : a biography. Many contemporary historians consider this thorough and superbly crafted work the quintessential biography of one of America's greatest presidents. Written by a native of England and originally published in 1916, the biography is a rare blend of beautiful prose and profound historical insight. Charnwood's study of Lincoln's statemanship introduced generations of Americans to the life and politics of Lincoln, and the author's observations are so comprehensive and well supported that any serious study of Lincoln must respond to his conclusions. This is essential reading for anyone interested in Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, or American political history
