I’ve been fascinated with Grant & Sherman for most of my adult life.
The friendship that won the Civil War.
This book was an interesting insight into William Tecumseh Sherman, detailing all aspects of who he was: West Pointer, banker, husband, Uncle Billy, and General Sherman. It showed so much of his strategic thinking, in and out of the military, and how is life led him to the March through Georgia.
Sherman is either loved or vilified, there really is no in between. He also didn’t care. He did what had to be done.
Reading this will tell you more about the man, how he became the legend, and how he made sure the myth would live on.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking into studying Sherman, to learn more about his career, the war, and his life long battle with Catholicism.
