Sherman’s March is an excellent account of William T. Sherman’s devastating sweep through Georgia and the Carolinas during the last days of the U.S. Civil War. In addition to the thorough and engaging narrative, Davis includes eyewitness accounts from hundreds of soldiers and civilians that serve to make history come alive in this work of non-fiction. Author Davis doesn’t gloss over anything. War is ugly and the truth about the action of soldiers and citizens alike isn’t hidden here. Sherman’s March is a real gem.
