About this title

Synopsis:

". . . massively researched . . . those seeking a richly detailed journal of the cavalry's role in one of the war's crucial campaigns will find this book irreplaceable." --Blue & Gray Magazine

"This volume is meticulously detailed and comes to some convincing conclusions." --The Journal of American History

"A vivid account of the campaign that helped decide the outcome of the Civil War. . . . A rich narrative that will delight students of the Civil War."--Kirkus Reviews

Attempting a quick, decisive victory in the 1864 struggle for Atlanta, William Tecumseh Sherman's cavalry wreaked havoc in the countryside around the city. This book, based largely upon previously unpublished materials, tells the story of Sherman's raids. Through exhaustive research, David Evans has been able to recreate a vivid, captivating, and meticulously detailed image of the day-by-day life of the Yankee horse soldier.

From the Back Cover:

Approaching Atlanta in July of 1864, William Tecumseh Sherman knew he was facing the most important campaign of his career. Lacking the troops and the desire to mount a long siege of the city, Sherman was eager for a quick, decisive victory. A change of tactics was in order. He decided to call on the cavalry.
