"A masterly performance . . . one of the most thorougly dignified, one of the most distinguished biographies of the year."--Henry Steele Commager, New York Herald Tribune

Liddell Hart considered General Sherman the dominant military genius of the Civil War; to prove his point, he traced Sherman's military campaigns, from the first Bull Run debacle to General Joseph Johnston's surrender in 1865.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Detailed! A very, very detailed account of Sherman's exploits. This is not a book you will digest in one sitting. There is a great deal of detail concerning the war, Sherman's actions, and of his thoughts. A very good book. Authoritative beyond question.
