Miss Susan: Not another book, the book. If you get no other for a year or so, get Sherman's Civil War, edited by Brooks Simpson and others. The book is very little more than his letters to whomever, whenever.  It contains no opinion of the man. It simply lays him out for you to figure out who he is. When I read it,  it was an entirely new perspective. A must read.

Like him or hate him, it's quite impossible to put a spin on a man whose letters reveal so much. This book is Sherman.
