This volume deals with the destructive march of Sherman and his men through Georgia and the Carolinas. Sherman's March is the vivid narrative of General William T. Sherman's devastating sweep through Georgia and the Carolinas in the closing days of the Civil War. Weaving together hundreds of eyewitness stories, Burke Davis graphically brings to life the dramatic experiences of the 65,000 Federal troops who plundered their way through the South and those of the anguished -- and often defiant -- Confederate women and men who sought to protect themselves and their family treasures, usually in vain. Dominating these events is the general himself -- "Uncle Billy" to his troops, the devil incarnate to the Southerners he encountered. "What gives this narrative its unusual richness is the author's collation of hundreds of eyewitness accounts...The actions are described in the words, often picturesque and often eloquent, of those who were there, either as participants -- Union soldiers, Confederate soldiers -- in the fighting and destruction or as victims of Sherman's frank vow to 'make Georgia howl.' Mr. Davis inter-cuts these scenes with close-ups of the chief actors in this nightmarish drama, and he also manages to give us a coherent historical account of the whole episode. A powerful illustration of the proposition put forth in Sherman's most famous remark.… (más)

Narrative account of Sherman's march through Gerorgia and the Carolina's in the American Civil War. The author through eyewitness accounts charts the effect on the civilians and slaves who were in the path of the Union soldiers as they burned and pillaged their way through these states and quickened the end of the brutal Civil War. Mr.Davis is at pains to prove that Sherman himself understood the brutality of war and its effect on civilians and that he was a precursor of the "wars of the 20th century". In my opinion the book highlights the importance of Sherman as a "fighting general" who inspired admiration among his troops and fear among his enemies. A well-researched book. ( )

Creative non-fiction. And you have to wonder about some of the sources - they seem pretty anecdotal, of the flavor of the virtuous Confederate women barring the door to the villainous Yankee invaders. How accurate can those accounts be? ( )
