Editorial Reviews

New York Times
"Sherman's life was a rich and varied tapestry, and Mr. Lewis has put the richness into his book. Not only does he make us understand Sherman, he makes us see again the tremendous, terrible pageant of the Civil War."—New York Times
Civil War History
"This is no ordinary military biography. . . . Lewis's excellent description of the relationship of Grant and Sherman and the meaning of the Union in Sherman's life are highlights which are not easily forgotten."—Civil War History
Christian Science Monitor
"The book is beautifully proportioned; the epic tale rumbles on with the inexorability of Sherman's cannon rolling down on Atlanta. An indispensable addition to the literature of this troubled period, and a worthy monument to the military genius who crushed the South which he loved."—Christian Science Monitor
New Republic
"The greatness and vividness of Sherman in his best years emerge from the facility and resource of this talented book."—New Republic
