Summary

"If the people raise a howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity-seeking. If they want peace, they and their relatives must stop the war." These are the words of General William T. Sherman, with whom "scorched earth policy" will forever be linked. In his memoirs, the Union general describes the waning days of the American Civil War and his famous march through Georgia, culminating in the capture and burning of Atlanta. With frank, forceful words, the listener is brought to the front lines as Sherman wipes out 20,000 Confederate soldiers and sacks Atlanta - and in the process boosts Abraham Lincoln's re-election campaign. Please note: This audiobook contains only the "Atlanta and the March to the Sea" segment of The Memoirs of William T. Sherman.

War Is Hell! A story that deserves re-telling

This book is a definite must-read for anyone with more than a passing interest in the American Civil War. This excerpt covers the battles around Atlanta and Sherman's March to the See; an amazing story in its own right. Sherman, for better or for worse, must be identified as among the world's first 'modern' generals and his narrative is clear, crisp and uncompromising. Unfortunately as an audiobook, this offering is anything but. The sound is muddy with some sections barely understandable. This is one story that deserves to be re-told

Incomplete. Audible Doesn't Have Other Volumes

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

First of all, the title appears in the search simply as "The Memoirs of William T. Sherman." It was only after I bought it that I saw it was only one volume covering the Georgia campaign. That should have been made clear in the title as it appeared before I bought it.
The other volumes don't seem to be available on Audible, so I'm stuck with an incomplete set. Grant's memoirs, on the other hand, came all together (although 3 downloads, they were all one purchase).
