Includes Civil War Map and Illustrations Pack - 224 battle plans, campaign maps and detailed analyses of actions spanning the entire period of hostilities. Among the greatest memoirs ever produced during the 19th Century; and a classic of American Literature, the autobiography of General William Tecumseh Sherman is a fantastic read that reveals not only his experiences of the Civil War but Sherman as a man. Not Just a book for military buffs Sherman paints a picture of himself and his contemporaries that does not always fit with preconceptions; not an unfeeling monster who ignored the cost of the war that he pursued: “I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.” A firm and loyal friend to those who stuck by him, especially his close adherent the future President U.S. Grant of whom he wrote; “Grant stood by me when I was crazy and I stood by him when he was drunk and now we stand by each other.” However, perhaps understandably the majority of the memoirs relate to his great achievements as a soldier during the upheavals of the Civil War. They are as detailed and vivid as any other recollections written of the Civil War and the author displays a rare knack of explaining the operations in light of the wider struggle. Highly recommended. This edition of the great General’s memoirs is the second edition which was revised and amended from the first after inaccuracies had been corrected and as such is the definitive article.

How the Civil War changed the face of war The Civil War represented a momentous change in the character of war. It combined the projection of military might across a continent on a scale never before seen with an unprecedented mass mobilization of peoples. Yet despite the revolutionizing aspects of the Civil War, its leaders faced the same uncertainties and vagaries of chance that have vexed combatants since the days of Thucydides and the Peloponnesian War. A Savage War sheds critical new light on this defining chapter in military history. In a masterful narrative that propels readers from the first shots fired at Fort Sumter to the surrender of Robert E. Lee's army at Appomattox, Williamson Murray and Wayne Wei-siang Hsieh bring every aspect of the battlefield vividly to life. They show how this new way of waging war was made possible by the powerful historical forces unleashed by the Industrial Revolution and the French Revolution, yet how the war was far from being simply a story of the triumph of superior machines. Despite the Union’s material superiority, a Union victory remained in doubt for most of the war. Murray and Hsieh paint indelible portraits of Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, William Tecumseh Sherman, and other major figures whose leadership, judgment, and personal character played such decisive roles in the fate of a nation. They also examine how the Army of the Potomac, the Army of Northern Virginia, and the other major armies developed entirely different cultures that influenced the war’s outcome. A military history of breathtaking sweep and scope, A Savage War reveals how the Civil War ushered in the age of modern warfare.
