Hailed as prophet of contemporary battle and condemned as a harbinger of contemporary barbarism, William Tecumseh Sherman is the most controversial normal of the American Civil Conflict. “Conflict is cruelty, and you can’t refine it,” he wrote in fury to the Accomplice mayor of Atlanta, and his memoir is stuffed with dozens of such wartime exchanges. With the propulsive vitality and intelligence that marked his campaigns, Sherman describes placing incidents and anecdotes and collects dozens of his incisive and infrequently outspoken wartime orders and stories. This complicated self-portrait of an modern and relentless American warrior supplies firsthand accounts of the battle’s essential occasions—Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, the Atlanta marketing campaign, the marches by way of Georgia and the Carolinas.
