Summary
Sherman: A Soldier's Passion for Order is the biography of William Tecumseh Sherman, the Civil War commander known for his "destructive war" policy against Confederates and as a consummate soldier. With a new preface by the author, this award-winning book presents the general as a complicated man who, fearing anarchy, searched for the order that he hoped would make his life a success. This biography, which includes forty-six illustrations, effectively refutes misconceptions surrounding the controversial Union general and presents Sherman the man, not the myth
