If the people raise a howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity-seeking. If they want peace, they and their relatives must stop the war. These are the words of General William T. Sherman, with whom scorched earth policy will forever be linked. In his memoirs, the Union general describes the waning days of the American Civil War and his famous march through Georgia, culminating in the capture and burning of Atlanta. With frank, forceful words, the listener is brought to the front lines as Sherman wipes out 20,000 Confederate soldiers and sacks Atlanta - and in the process boosts Abraham Lincoln's re-election campaign.

    " Not quite as well written at Grant's memoirs. It is interesting to read this side by side with that book though to see the contrast between the two men. Also, how their paths veered after the war. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Curtis | 10/26/2010

    " Inside the mind of one of the greatest military thinkers in history. If nothing else, read the section portraying the letters between Sherman and General Hood. Sherman's arguments in favor of the Federal point of view are brilliant. "

    " Was digging it, read the first volume, and need to buy a copy(had a library book) to read the second volume and get to the part about the March to the Sea, which is the whole reason I took the book on! "

    " Aside from the CW, which I haven't hit yet, Sherman offers a good deal of local color about life in the mid-19th century. "
