ISBN

General William Tecumseh Sherman's 1864 burning of Atlanta solidified his legacy as a ruthless leader. Evolving from a spirited student at West Point, Sherman became a general who fought in some of the Civil War's most decisive campaigns--Shiloh, Vicksburg, Atlanta--until finally, seeking a swift ending to the war's horrendous casualties, he devastated southern resources on his famous March to the Sea across the Carolinas. Later, as general-in-chief of the U.S. Army, Sherman relentlessly paved the way west during the Indian wars. James Lee McDonough's fresh insight reveals a man tormented by fears that history would pass him by and that he would miss his chance to serve his country. Drawing on years of research, McDonough delves into Sherman's dramatic personal life, including his strained relationship with his wife, his personal debts, and his young son's death. The result is a remarkable, illuminating portrait of an American icon.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: James Lee McDonoughPublisher: W. W.
