About the Author

William Tecumseh Sherman (1820 1891) was an American soldier, businessman, educator and author. He served as a General in the Union Army during the American Civil War (1861 65), for which he received recognition for his outstanding command of military strategy as well as criticism for the harshness of the "scorched earth" policies that he implemented in conducting total war against the Confederate States. Military historian B. H. Liddell Hart famously declared that Sherman was "the first modern general." Sherman served under General Ulysses S. Grant in 1862 and 1863 during the campaigns that led to the fall of the Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg on the Mississippi River and culminated with the routing of the Confederate armies in the state of Tennessee. In 1864, Sherman succeeded Grant as the Union commander in the western theater of the war. He proceeded to lead his troops to the capture of the city of Atlanta, a military success that contributed to the re-election of President Abraham Lincoln. Sherman's subsequent march through Georgia and the Carolinas further undermined the Confederacy's ability to continue fighting. He accepted the surrender of all the Confederate armies in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida in April 1865. When Grant assumed the U.S. presidency in 1869, Sherman succeeded him as Commanding General of the Army (1869 83). As such, he was responsible for the U.S. Army conduct in the Indian Wars over the next 15 years, in the western United States. He steadfastly refused to be drawn into politics and in 1875 published his Memoirs, one of the best-known firsthand accounts of the Civil War.

This rating pertains not to the content, but to the edition. The book is a classic, and an important historical document. The edition seems to be one of those computer-produced editions, filled with typos that are recognisable as scanner misreadings (nis for his, bot for not, that sort of thing). In short, this thing was published without being proofread by any human being. It is still readable, but any researcher who quotes from it is in danger of quoting a misreading. Publishers, please: when you print a scanned edition of a book, hire a proofreader to correct it before you publish!

I really learned allot about the man. this gave me a whole new insight about the civil war and how far the men who fought in it were willing to go. plus it told the hardships that they had to endure during the war. As a veteran myself i have more respect for these brave men. this is a must have.
