Disappointing. I had hoped to find the literary sylist and historical popularizer who produced an outstanding work like "A Storm in Flanders." Sadly, no. Not only is the wordsmithing not up to snuff, but the historical insights are few and often bogus. For example, he depicts Sherman as opposed to high casualty operations as a way to Union victory, a position not borne out by the record.
