Synopsis

Synopsis

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 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 controversy surrounding it, the march was a success. Supported by photographs, detailed maps, and artwork, this title explores the key personalities and engagements of the march and provides a detailed analysis of the campaign that marked the 'beginning of the end' of the Civil War.

"This brief study, designed as an illustrated overview of the campaign, examines in some detail various battles around Atlanta, such as Allatoona Pass, through the fall of Savannah"- Ted Alexander, Blue & Gray Magazine (Holiday 2007)

"Along with an excellent choice of period photographsd and the superb artwork maps of Richard Hook, the story of this pivotal campaign and the major battles therein are brought to life. It is another superb Osprey work and one that I know you will find as enjoyable and interesting as did I." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com
