KIRKUS REVIEW

Phil Sheridan, the trigger-tempered son of an Ohio contractor, knew from the time he was a runt-sized boy that he enjoyed fighting more than any other pursuit. Despite the stern admonitions of his family and priests, Phil continued to be a fighter, realizing as he matured that his courage would be of value only if he learned to control his peppery nature. Sheridan's entry into West Point despite familiar and clerical reservations, his mastery over impulse, and his rise to fame culminating in his heroic role final victory of the Union is given an animated portrayal in this biography of one of America's most noted cavalry men.
