I loved this book. It was an enlightening look into the mind of an often misunderstood man. Sherman has been maligned by many southerners because of the march to the sea, but this book makes the point that Sherman's desire was to end the war as quickly as possible with as little of loss of life as possible. Any atrocities that were committed were not by his will or permission. Sherman actually seems to be a man who loved the south. ( )
