FIGHTING POLITICAN by Fred Harvey Harrington


Email this review


The biography of Major General M.P. Banks, a Waltham, Massachusetts, boy who became a practical politician, an officer in the Civil War, a persevering Washington . This his career in detail, gives an intimate and personal history of the pattern he followed in achieving his ambitions in politics, in attaining the status of Major General in the Union Army, shows his failures under the Reconstruction, and his prophetic voice in his imperialistic theories for the U.S. Of interest to a limited market, this is nonetheless a careful, coordinated picture of a military amateur, who achieved fame also as a fighting politican.
