"Today's wars break down into two major areas (according to Cleburne Fan's Theory of Modern Warfare). One type is the massively technological war in which vast superiority in modern weapon systems makes demands for a certain type of leadership unknown in past history.

But in stark contrast, guerrilla warfare (ex: FARK, Colombia and Abu Sayaf, The Phillipines)  and terroristic tactics (ex: Basque seperatists, Spain and Al Queda, various countries) fought anywhere and everywhere demand a totally different kind of leadership philosophy and expertise."

Excellent points, where I am concerned.

I agree with your accessment of Sherman, cain't help but think that he is a general for the ages, would be effective thoughout time, space and circumstance.

Unlike his little buddy, U.S. Grant,=+++.
