Riding on the wave of his victory at Atlanta, Union General W. T. Sherman abandoned his supply lines in an attempt to push his forces into Confederate territory and take Savannah. During the entirety of their 285-mile 'March to the Sea,' the army lived off the land and destroyed all war-making capabilities of the enemy en route. Despite the vilification that this brutal tactic earned him, the march was a success. Supported by contemporary photographs, detailed maps, bird's eye views, and battlescene artwork, this title explores the key personalities, strategies, and significant engagements of the march, including the battles of Franklin and Nashville, and the ultimate fall of Savannah to the Union, to provide a detailed analysis of the campaign that marked the 'beginning of the end' of the American Civil War.
