In the words of the Commander,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Capture of Atlanta and the March to the Sea: From Sherman's Memoirs (Civil War) (Paperback)
The story of the March in the words of the Commanding General himself. Doing reading on the subject for around four months I decided to pick up a book by him about his own March. His side of the story does often go along with what Historians have to say about him. Unlike any major Historian (that I've found) will do, he actually tells you why he made some of his major decisions.
It does take some getting used to, because it's written in the era's form of English and writting.. and you will pick up on the differences very quickly, but you get used to it. For "old and ancient" writing.. I found it to be a very well written and put together book, despite the fact that the March to the Sea is the last chapter of the book (and also the last 70ish pages).
