      "We were as brothers," William Tecumseh Sherman said, describing his relationship to Ulysses S. Grant. They were incontestably two of the most important figures in the Civil War, but until now there has been no book about their victorious partnership and the deep friendship that made it possible. They were prewar failures--Grant, forced to resign from the Regular Army because of 4/5(7). The first major modern edition of the wartime correspondence of General William T. Sherman, this volume features more than letters written between the election of Abraham Lincoln in and the day Sherman bade farewell to his troops in Together, they trace Sherman's rise from obscurity to become one of the Union's most famous and effective ed .

[Basil Henry Liddell Hart, Sir]. Liddell Hart considered General Sherman the dominant military genius of the Civil War; to prove his point, he traced Sherman's military campaigns, from the first Bull Run debacle to General Joseph Johnston's surrender in Cited by: SHERMAN THE GENIUS OF THE CIVIL WAR by B.

Liddell Hart and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at : Hardcover. A Military Genius -William T. Sherman. The Confederacy howled when Sherman made his march to the sea in Georgia.

Not to fault him, if the Confederacy left the state defenseless to a large army. Before the War, he bounced back and forth in a succession of jobs and careers, all of which resulted in abysmal failure. Never has a man been better suited for a job, than Sherman in the role of Army commander.

Sherman’s greatest strengths were in the area of logistics, planning, strategy and execution of that strategy/5(). Genius of the civil war. Thread starter adam; The civil war (as all wars do) through up a large amount of people with a lot of talent, although not in all cases was this for the right reason.

Sherman, reading the book, took objection and engaged in a series of letters across the Atlantic to tell the man what he'd missed. The British. Among the towering figures of the Civil War, none is more enigmatic than General William Tecumseh Sherman.

Widely denounced as fiendishly destructive and even insane for his infamous March to the Sea across Georgia, Sherman was a brilliant commander and strategist who helped bring the bloody war to a swifter and surer end. Yet he left a legacy of "total war". William Tecumseh Sherman possessed not only the most unusual middle name, but also the most orginal mind among Civil War generals.

His great campaign of destruction through the South was years ahead of its time and foreshadowed both the totality and mobility of WW II/5. Plot summary. Published in by E.L.

Doctorow, The March is a historical fiction novel set in late and early near the conclusion of the American Civil l to the novel is the character of General William Tecumseh Sherman Publisher: Random House.

Far more books have been written about the Civil War than about any other event in American history, and Lincoln’s stack of books towers over that of any other American figure. Any recommended reading list therefore has to be highly selective and at least somewhat arbitrary.

Civil War out on limb here, bear with me, if you will. The ‘genius’ of William Tecumseh Sherman (IMHO) lies in the notion that he was not a ‘leader’ but he was the consummate ‘follower’. This new year will mark the th anniversary of the United States Civil War The New York Remembering Sherman and Slavery.

Obviously the world had to wait for the genius. One problem with weighing Sherman as a genius - and looking at his Atlanta Campaign here - is the utterly dismal quality of Johnston's opposition. Had Johnston been like Lee, the type of general who would give his right arm for a chance to leap at your vulnerable columns, flanking him out of every position would be impressive.

About American General. From respected historian John S. 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.”.

(CIVIL WAR) LINCOLN, Benjamin C. Civil War Diary, Archive. No place, Interesting Civil War diary and related papers of Union officer and abolitionist Benjamin C. Lincoln, who would become an officer in the 2nd United States Colored Troops, in which he describes the captured home of Robert E.

Lee and Jeb Stuart's Chambersburg Raid. NAL Hardcover (October 7, ) 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.

Sherman’s autobiography is pretty great. Clear, engaging, thorough narrative, if utterly one-sided. Sherman is positively Churchillian in his complete certitude regarding his version of events.

Not saying he’s right all the time (god knows Churchi. William Tecumseh Sherman was a key Union general during the Civil War.

Rising to prominence under Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, Sherman served as an effective corps commander before being given overall command in the West.

Capturing Atlanta inWilliam Sherman conducted a scorched earth march to Savannah. (The Shermanesque Stance!)According to Robert L.

O’Connell in his new book AMERICAN PATRIOT: THE TANGLED LIVES OF WILLIAM TECUMSEH SHERMAN, the life of the Civil War hero should not be portrayed in the traditional fashion by preparing a chronological narrative because its results would be too cumbersome. Instead, the author has produced a fascinating book.

It shows as Sherman is quoted, "that we are as brothers." The book gives the background of each man and his family prior to the outbreak of the Civil War. I enjoyed the coverage given of Grant's and Sherman's relationships with friends, family members, and their wives.

The book shows the chemistry and respect the two have for each other.5/5(5).
