Among the towering figures of the Civil War, none is more enigmatic than General William Tecumseh Sherman. Marszalek's full-scale biography richly captures not only the Civil War, but the entire extraordinary life of this man who attended West Point, fought in the Indian Wars, experienced the Gold Rush in San Francisco, was involved in the construction of the transcontinental railroad, worked as a banker, teacher, annd public speaker, and turned away repeated calls that he run for President. Includes an Index. "John Marszalek's Sherman is the most scholarly, comprehensive, and perceptive study of Sherman that has been written." --Albert Castel, author of Decision in the West: The Atlanta Campaign of 1864.
