Military Quotes

There is many a boy here today who looks on war as all glory, but, boys, it is all hell.

-- General William T. Sherman

Hearts in Conflict: A One-Volume History of the Civil War

Anders combines numerous sources to produce a marvelous and manageable single-volume history of the Civil War, with easy-to-use maps. Relations between the presidents of both sides and their respective generals are emphasized. Almost half the book involves the puzzling George McClellan, who, with his slow progress and constant exaggeration of Lee's forces, may have been the South's best friend in the Union. We also see just how good Lee really was, taking incredible chances in the face of great odds and succeeding.
