Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Military historian Steven Woodworth has cracked the code of one of the Civil War’s best-known, complex, and most controversial [figures]…Woodworth has fully captured the man with concision, precision, and style.” Noah Andre Trudeau, bestselling author of Southern Storm: Sherman’s March to the Sea and Gettysburg: A Testing of Courage
“[A] gem of a military biography. To read it is to cut through the myth and see the real William T. Sherman.” John C. Waugh, award-winning author of One Man Great Enough: Abraham Lincoln’s Road to Civil War and The Class of 1846: From West Point to Appomattox
“Taking guidance from the story’s description of Sherman’s personality, narrator Tom Weiner speaks with an assertive, strong voice. He strikes a brisk pace through Sherman’s training at West Point, his early army experiences, and finally his battles, culminating in the capture of Atlanta from the Confederates at the war’s end. Weiner’s strong performance helps showcase an exemplary biography of character and leadership.” AudioFile
