Overview

One of the finest Civil War books in years. "Mobile Press-Register"

Excellent. . . . a memorable and moving portrait of a besieged city. "Booklist"

An absolute pleasure to read. "Civil War News"

Mr. Bonds correctly notes that recent revisionist historians have tried to play down or even deny Sherman s role in the burning. "Winston Groom in the Wall Street Journal"

The freshness of the writing style, the pace of the story, and the handling of an entire campaign is as compelling as Bruce Catton s landmark Army of the Potomac trilogy. "Civil War Librarian"

Well-researched and well-written. . . . excellent character sketches. . . vivid and moving. . . . maps and diagrams of the battles are outstanding. "Bowling Green Daily News"

Magnificent. "Civil War Notebook"

Russell S. Bonds has an impressive ability to combine combat narrative with shrewd analyses of commanders performances. "James M. McPherson, author of Tried by War"

Using his skills as both historian and storyteller, Russell S. Bonds has given us what might have seemed impossible a fresh, new look back at Atlanta. "Robert Hicks, author of The Widow of the South"

A masterpiece of prose and research, the definitive history of the struggle for Atlanta during the Civil War, an episode immortalized by the novel "Gone with the Wind.""
