"Matthew Carr offers an ... assessment of the impact Sherman's policies have had on subsequent wars, including in the Philippines, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and even Iraq and Afghanistan. Sherman's Ghosts opens with a ... retelling of General Sherman's fateful decision to turn his sights on the South's civilian population in order to break the back of the Confederacy.
