No other narrative account of Abraham Lincoln's life has inspired such widespread and lasting acclaim as Charnwood's Abraham Lincoln: A Biography. 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 statesmanship 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.

1140 Abraham Lincoln, by Godfrey Rathbone Benson [Lord Charnwood] (read 25 Nov 1971) This is a book of about 500 pages, and in that size said little I did not already know. I have read so much on the Civil War. I should really not read any more. About a year ago the three-volume work on Jefferson Davis was read. It was still fresh in my mind, even though told from another angle entirely. Furthermore, Charnwood's English and his lack of familiarity with the very obvious workings of American politics made this book seem superficial at times.

An excellent biography of the 16th President. An older biography, it is extremely well written and provides a different (with its British author) but sympathetic perspective to Lincoln and the Civil War era United States. Well worth reading.
