📒William Tecumseh Sherman In The Service Of My Country A Life ✍ James Lee McDonough
📝William Tecumseh Sherman In the Service of My Country A Life Book Synopsis : The New York Times best-selling biography of one of America’s most storied military figures. General Sherman’s 1864 burning of Atlanta solidified his legacy as a ruthless leader. Yet Sherman proved far more complex than his legendary military tactics reveal. James Lee McDonough offers fresh insight into a man tormented by the fear that history would pass him by, who was plagued by personal debts, and who lived much of his life separated from his family. As a soldier, Sherman evolved from a spirited student at West Point into a general who steered the Civil War’s most decisive campaigns, rendered here in graphic detail. Lamenting casualties, Sherman sought the war’s swift end by devastating Southern resources in the Carolinas and on his famous March to the Sea. This meticulously researched biography explores Sherman’s warm friendship with Ulysses S. Grant, his strained relationship with his wife, Ellen, and his unassuageable grief over the death of his young son, Willy. The result is a remarkable, comprehensive life of an American icon whose legacy resonates to this day.
📒Sherman S Civil War ✍ Brooks D. Simpson
📝Sherman s Civil War Book Synopsis : The first major modern edition of the wartime correspondence of General William T. Sherman, this volume features more than 400 letters written between the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and the day Sherman bade farewell to his troops in 1865. Together, they trace Sherman's rise from obscurity to become one of the Union's most famous and effective warriors. Arranged chronologically and grouped into chapters that correspond to significant phases in Sherman's life, the letters--many of which have never before been published--reveal Sherman's thoughts on politics, military operations, slavery and emancipation, the South, and daily life in the Union army, as well as his reactions to such important figures as General Ulysses S. Grant and President Lincoln. Lively, frank, opinionated, discerning, and occasionally extremely wrong-headed, these letters mirror the colorful personality and complex mentality of the man who wrote them. They offer the reader an invaluable glimpse of the Civil War as Sherman saw it.
📒Home Letters Of General Sherman ✍ William Tecumseh Sherman
📝Home Letters of General Sherman Book Synopsis : Who was William Tecumseh Sherman? Before the American Civil War, he was an obscure military man. In the early days of the conflict, he was considered by some to be insane. At the end of the war, he was considered one of America's greatest heroes and generals. Brilliant, erratic, and a force of nature, Sherman cut a swath across the South that is now a part of world history. In these intimate letters to family, you see a side of Sherman you perhaps have not seen before. From a young man writing to his future wife, to the general in charge of an army, to the man in his last years, these are the private letters Sherman sent home. This collection was passed on to Marc Antony DeWolfe Howe (of the Atlantic Monthly) by Sherman's daughter. Here are his opinions on politics and politicians, his fellow generals, his friend Grant, and the horrors of war. For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.
📒William Tecumseh Sherman And The Settlement Of The West ✍ Robert G. Athearn
📝William Tecumseh Sherman and the Settlement of the West Book Synopsis : William Tecumseh Sherman is known primarily for having cut a swath of destruction through Georgia and the Carolinas during the Civil War. From the fame of these years, however, he moved into an eighteen-year phase of “insuring the tranquility” of the vast region of the American West. As commander of the Division of the Missouri from 1865 to 1869 and General of the Army of the United States under President Grant from 1869 to 1883, Sherman facilitated expansion and settlement in the West while suppressing the raids of the Cheyenne, Arapahoe, Kiowa, Comanche, and Crow Indians. Robert G. Athearn explores Sherman’s and his army’s roles in the settling of the West, especially within the broad framework of railroad construction, Indian policy, political infighting, and popular opinion.

📒Memoirs Of Gen William T Sherman Complete ✍ William Tecumseh Sherman
📝Memoirs of Gen William T Sherman Complete Book Synopsis : Both volumes of General William T. Sherman's superb memoirs are contained in this presentable and unified edition. The Memoirs of William T. Sherman is a landmark autobiography featuring Sherman's recollections of the years prior to, during, and following the U.S. Civil War. We hear detailed accounts of Sherman's coming-of-age, his military training, his rise through the ranks, and the battles he participated in. Pages are filled with meticulous details of troop movements and battle tactics, with Sherman's prowess as a general in full evidence upon every page, together with his encounters and correspondences with other prominent figures of the time. Volume One The first volume begins with General Sherman's early life. His formative childhood and upbringing, his experience with combat in the Mexican-American War plus his years as an officer in California are recounted. We hear of his friends and superiors, and the attitude with which he confronted what was to be a lengthy military career spanning decades. In terms of excitement and pace, the book comes into its own with the beginning of the American Civil War. A military man and officer by heart, it is when describing the successive skirmishes such as the bloody, gore-stained Battle of Vicksburg that William Sherman is in his element. The vivid descriptions of the battlefield and the troop movements to this day count among the finer sources of Civil War history. Volume Two In Volume Two, Sherman describes the American Civil War from the Georgia campaign onward. The means by which he co-ordinated with the armies of the Union to capture the crucial city of Atlanta are detailed across several chapters. The evacuation of the newly-captured city, and the thought Sherman put into this order, are detailed. The later portions of the following cover the closing stages of the U.S. Civil War; the march across Georgia to the sea to liberate Savannah are told. Finally, the turning of the army northwards through the Carolinas in order to defeat the remaining Confederate forces there is detailed. Sherman devotes relatively little writing to the period of his life following the American Civil War. However, this final chapter does contain vital correspondences between he and Ulysses S. Grant - who would in 1869 become the President of the United States - as Sherman engaged in skirmishes versus the Native American tribes in the west of the-then expanding USA. ----- In the decades after the American Civil War, Sherman acquired a reputation for ruthlessness, particularly for his military actions against the Native Americans following the Civil War. However his military spirit and capabilities, and the confidence he inspired in his men, has led even the most derogatory scholars to concede that he was a true soldier with a passionate commitment to the United States of America. Although a rousing speaker with a keen interest in reading, Sherman was averse to politics and would remain in a military position for his entire working life. It is no exaggeration to say that General Sherman's character shaped the U.S. military as it grew and evolved through the nineteenth century: in reading his memoirs, the reader may grasp the strength and enormity of his character.

📒American General ✍ John S.D. Eisenhower
📝American General Book Synopsis : From respected historian John S. D. Eisenhower comes a surprising portrait of William Tecumseh Sherman, the Civil War general whose path of destruction cut the Confederacy in two, broke the will of the Southern population, and earned him a place in history as “the first modern general.” Yet behind his reputation as a fierce warrior was a sympathetic man of complex character. A century and a half after the Civil War, Sherman remains one of its most controversial figures—the soldier who brought the fight not only to the Confederate Army, but to Confederate civilians as well. Yet Eisenhower, a West Point graduate and a retired brigadier general (Army Reserves), finds in Sherman a man of startling contrasts, not at all defined by the implications of “total war.” His scruffy, disheveled appearance belied an unconventional and unyielding intellect. Intensely loyal to superior officers, especially Ulysses S. Grant, he was also a stalwart individualist. Confident enough to make demands face-to-face with President Lincoln, he sympathetically listened to the problems of newly freed slaves on his famed march from Atlanta to Savannah. Dubbed “no soldier” during his years at West Point, Sherman later rose to the rank of General of the Army, and though deeply committed to the Union cause, he held the people of the South in great affection. In this remarkable reassessment of Sherman’s life and career, Eisenhower takes readers from Sherman’s Ohio origins and his fledgling first stint in the Army, to his years as a businessman in California and his hurried return to uniform at the outbreak of the war. From Bull Run through Sherman’s epic March to the Sea, Eisenhower offers up a fascinating narrative of a military genius whose influence helped preserve the Union—and forever changed war.
