Description
In the crowded battle field of Civil War commanders, William T. Sherman stands apart. Others can be summed up in a few words: the stubborn, taciturn Grant; the gentlemanly, gifted Lee; the stomping, cursing Sheridan; and the flamboyant, boyish Stuart. But the contradictory Sherman eludes us. Probably no other figure of his day divides historians so deeply -- leading some to praise him as a genius, others to condemn him as a fraud.

In Sherman, acclaimed military historian Lee Kennett offers a brilliant new interpretation of the general's life and career, one that embraces his erratic, contradictory nature. Writing with grace and vivid detail, he offers a truly complete picture of the man, from his formative West Point years through his anticlimactic part in the Mexican War, from his abortive career as a San Francisco banker to his second start in the army, once the Civil War began. Kennett draws on important new research to present a fresh portrayal of Sherman, who emerges from this comprehensive work as more human and fascinating than ever before.
