"General Sherman was like Attila the Hun, but less cuddly." With this first sentence, Coburn describes the traditional view of William T. Sherman. Maintaining that Sherman was neither Satan nor saint, he chronicles Sherman's Georgia campaign as an example. While Grant hammered away at Lee, Sherman mounted a campaign of destruction and terror with far fewer casualties during his march to the sea. History, Coburn notes, made Grant a hero while making a scapegoat out of Sherman, who preferred to destroy property rather than lives. Coburn has written a balanced biography that will appeal to general readers and Civil War buffs alike."
