Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best-selling author's account of the devastating military campaign that broke the Confederacy's back in the last months of the Civil War.  

In November 1864, just days after the reelection of President Abraham Lincoln, General William T. Sherman vowed to "make Georgia howl." The hero of Shiloh and his 65,000 Federal troops destroyed the great city of Atlanta, captured Savannah, and cut a wide swath of destruction through Georgia and the Carolinas on their way to Virginia. A scorched-earth campaign that continues to haunt the Southern imagination, Sherman's "March to the Sea" and ensuing drive north was a crucial turning point in the War between the States.  

Weaving together hundreds of eyewitness accounts, best-selling author Burke Davis tells the story of this infamous episode from the perspective of the Union soldiers and the Confederate men and women who stood in their path. Eloquent, heartrending, and vastly informative, Sherman's March brilliantly examines one of the most polarizing figures in American military history and offers priceless insights into the enduring legacy of the Civil War.

This is fiction, not history.

Another "lost cause" attempt to make the society that attacked the United States to protect slavery look like victims.

Well worth your time…much to learn

Sherman’s March

Burke Davis does an excellent job recounting General Sherman’s exploits on the March to the Sea. He provides interesting anecdotes and quotes which reveal Sherman’s brilliance, his ability to cut through chaff…and his weaknesses.

I think that is my favorite part of the book. You see that someone of remarkable intellect and plain spoken wisdom can also miss obvious traps. We should be careful in our judgments.

Well worth your time.

I can't believe the author is that stupid

Mr. Davis thinks it's evidence of "white supremacy" that General Sherman wouldn't take along women and children or old men, only able bodied men who could help his cause. Stupidest thing I have ever heard. This author has no business writing this book. I greatly admire all our civil war generals (except do-nothing McClellan), and was hoping to learn more about General Sherman. I won't learn anything from a nit wit like Burke Davis.

Great story of Heartless Yankee

Wow! Killing, burning, stealing, raping and destroying lives of innocent Southerners who had no vote or choice in the War of Northern Aggression. Sherman was the perfect pawn for Dishonest Abe. Read this book and be enlightened on the general all Yankees admired.
