Description
The author of The Ghosts of Cannae, Of Arms and Men, and Soul of the Sword, military historian Robert O'Connell offers this bold, revisionist portrait of William Tecumseh Sherman, an iconic and enigmatic figure who exerted an outsize impact on the American landscape. From his early exploits in Florida, through his brilliant but tempestuous generalship during the Civil War, to his postwar career as a key player in the building of the transcontinental railroad, Sherman was, as O'Connell puts it, the "human embodiment of Manifest Destiny."

"For those who think they know a lot about William Tecumseh Sherman, this book will be a revelation. Those who are meeting him for the first time will be equally mesmerized."—Thomas Fleming

"To his family and friends he was Cump; to his soldiers he was Uncle Billy; to generations of Southern whites he was the devil incarnate. But to biographer Robert L. O'Connell, William T. Sherman was the quintessential 19th-century American: full of energy, constantly on the move, pragmatic, adaptable, determined to overcome all obstacles, a nationalist and patriot who teamed with Grant and Lincoln to win the Civil War and launch America as a world power. This readable biography offers new insights on Sherman as a husband and father as well as a master strategist and leader."—James M. McPherson
