Since few books have been written about Henry Warner Slocum this edition is a good start. It is evident there are not many primary sources or extant information to draw on when writing about this general because the book glosses over details of his life, I assume because there was no information available. Because of this the book does not provide as detailed a glimps of the generals life and personality as one would wish for. I found the book interesting but was constantly hoping for more detail.

Slocum is much maligned in history books. This is an accurate and balanced view of his accomplishments. It is well written for a quick read, and dives into inteserting subjects of his interaction with each of his superiors and how that framed his actions. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

A nice insight into the world of an oft critcized Union general. The author showed how he mirrored his superiors' throughout his military carrier. His finest leadership came under W.T. Sherman. Nice work.
