9780020363606: Sherman's March

The book describes Restons journey through the south retracing General William Tecumseh Shermans March from Atlanta to the Sea and then north into North Carolina. Reston considers southern mythology about Sherman and the Civil War, and compares it to accurate history. In Part II he makes parallels between Shermans method of warfare and the methods of the Vietnam War.The New Yorker"Original, provocative and far ranging...deserves a wide audience." Los Angeles Times"A fine meditation on American history, absorbing in its narrative and compelling in its challenge to the national conscience."Arthur Schlesinger, Jr."We are obliged to Reston for his reflections on this historical analogy; not so much for setting our minds at rest about moral dilemmas of the present as for lending them needed perspective."C. Vann Woodward, Boston Globe
