Summary
In his famous "March to the Sea" in 1864 and 1865 General William Sherman effectively ended the Civil War and at the same time introduced the devastating concept of "total war." Joseph T. Glatthaar presents here a lively and dramatic account of this terrifying and terrifyingly effective sweep throught the South from an entirely new perspective: through the eyes of the common soldier. - Jacket flap
