Education in Violence

£9.99

Product description

George H. Thomas can be considered to be the father of the modern army. He made the most extensive use of the newest technologies, took the best care of his men, and had the best record of all of the commanding generals - not one loss - even though he was originally from Virginia and fought for the North. He was thus perceived as being a threat to the advancement of the careers some of the other generals, notably Grant and Schofield. This excellently written and documented book by Francis F. MicKinney lays bare the political cross-currents and intrigues in the military of those times and presents Grant and Sherman as they really were and not as they made themselves out to be in their memoires. This book will surprise you, regardless of your persuasion, sectional origin, and knowledge about the Civil War.

Book as clean pages throughout and securely bound. Some bending to the corners of the covers.Printed in 1997.
