I chose this book because the title was ?prelude to greatness? meaning the author was saying that Abraham Lincoln was great when he came into power. I agree with him, Mr. Lincoln did many extraordinary things in his life such as opposing slavery and winning the war to help blacks be free, because if it weren?t for him then we still might have slavery to this day.
In my opinion the author Don E. Fehrenbacher is very qualified to write a book on Abraham Lincoln. He is a history professor at Stanford University, and has done a great job explaining Lincoln?s life. He is qualified to write this book because he has a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and was with and educated with the US Army during World War 2. He has taught for a total of 44 years and flew 30 combat missions over Germany and occupied Europe, he has written a total of nine books in his career and
