it was amazing
Read in October, 2009

The story of a city during the Civil War is not often told and certainly overshadowed by books about the battles and campaigns. But, when this book about Atlanta came out I just had to read it first and I was not disappointed at all. There are so many little known aspects of Sherman's approach to handling the city and its residents that amazed me and I thought I had previously read it all. In this one book you can understand why Sherman is so hated by southerners and recognize his true genius at the same time.
