A well-rounded study.... Everything about this book will interest readers who want to know more about antebellum America and the Civil War.--Starred Review
[McDonough] tells this story well.--Thomas E. Ricks
Sherman's is surely a fascinating American life, in war and peace alike, and this packed book will beguile a whole summer with ease.--John Timpane
Masterly...the product of a historian's lifelong study....a full-blooded narrative.--Carl Rollyson
[McDonough] offers a great deal of shrewd military analysis, but what gives the book its vigor is [his] presentation of Sherman's propulsive personality.--Richard Snow
McDonough...adroitly weaves his prodigious knowledge of Civil War-era America into this behemoth biography as he brilliantly captures Gen. Sherman's personality.... an exhaustive biography told with considerable narrative skill.
James McDonough's William Tecumseh Sherman is the first major biography of this complex, challenging figure in almost a quarter century, and it is deeply researched and thoughtfully presented. Engagingly written, it brings new perspective to Sherman's pre-war years and the benefit of a lifetime of study to his Civil War career. Perhaps no one will ever completely capture Sherman, but McDonough's wide net snares more than enough of the new with the old to make this a life well worth reading.--William C. Davis, author of Crucible of Command: Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee--The War They Fought, the Peace They Forged
A vigorous military biography....welcome reading for any student of Civil War history.--Starred review
