Publisher's Summary

First published in 1875, General William T. Sherman's memoir was one of the first from the Civil War and was offered to the public because, as Sherman wrote in his dedication, "no satisfactory history" of the war was yet available.

Although Memoirs has been revised and corrected many times over the years, Sherman famously never changed the original text of his recollections. He was not a historian, he said, and said that "any witness who may disagree with me should publish his own version of [the] facts...."

    "Not for a beginner."

    I would not recommend this book if it's the 1st you are reading about the Civil War. In depth descriptions of troop movements and battlefield leadership decisions. Bronson Pinchot could use a "pick me up".

    "Narrator was almost there"

    With any audio book, you are at the mercy of the narrator, and this book is particularly lengthy. Fortunately Bronson Pinchot has a pleasant voice, and command of both Spanish and French pronunciation as a bonus. The Achilles heel is his rendering of all the Southern towns and rivers that Sherman marched past. If you can forgive that, it's well done otherwise.
