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
Summary
Traces the life of the controversial Civil War general, and argues that an unsettled childhood help shape his character
