Sherman's MarchDownloadable Audiobook - 2008
General William Tecumseh Sherman is known as the man who said "War is hell" and who waged it so fiercely as to leave a permanent scar on the Southern psyche. But Civil War historian Richard Wheeler offers a new view of Sherman, as a man of compassion as well as conviction, a military leader who was ahead of his time in understanding that the destruction of supplies and property-the means to wage war-was as important as meeting and destroying enemy armies. Wheeler has created a seamless, highly readable yet historically accurate narrative with extracts from letters, diaries, memoirs, and first-person reports from the period. The result is a dramatic and detailed account of this important campaign as one which, though highly destructive, doubtlessly shortened the Civil War appreciably, saving thousands of lives, Rebel as well as Yank.
