About the Author

STEVEN E. WOODWORTH is a Professor of History at Texas Christian University, USA. He is an acknowledged expert on the American Civil War.


'Military historian Steven Woodworth has cracked the code of one of the Civil War's best-known, complex, and most controversial commanders - William Tecumseh Sherman. A larger-than-life figure of decided opinions, prejudices and passions, Sherman was also a sharp strategic thinker with the character and wherewithal to put his thoughts into action. That he changed the course of the Civil War there is no doubt, neither is there any question that Woodworth has fully captured the man with concision, precision, and style.' -Noah Andre Trudeau, bestselling author of Southern Storm: Sherman's March to the Sea and Gettysburg: A Testing of Courage 'It has long been evident that Steven Woodworth has a mastery of Civil War history that allows him to write on any aspect of it with vast knowledge, understanding, perception, accuracy, and brio. He has brought all of that skill into play again in this gem of a military biography. To read it is to cut through the myth and see the real William T. Sherman.' -John C. Waugh, award-winning author of One Man Great Enough: Abraham Lincoln's Road to Civil War and The Class of 1846: From West Point to Appomattox 'With the clarity and lucidity of style that has become his hallmark, Steven Woodworth has given us a splendid brief biography of William T. Sherman. Concise without sacrificing important details, this book analyzes the qualities of personality and leadership that made Sherman a great general and an essential partner with Ulysses S. Grant to win the Civil War.' -James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom and Tried by War: Abraham Lincoln as Commander in Chief
