    Interesting book that lays out a lot of personal stories about those who were behind the scenes of the Civil war in a support role (nurses, slaves, cooks) and brings forward their personal stories but knits them together through the event of Sherman's March to the Sea. And my biggest t...

    ?Rising in Flames? walks gingerly down the fine line between textbook and historical narrative. The story follows the men and women who supported Sherman?s March to the Sea, from front line commanders to the women in the field hospitals and at home sending supplies to the troops ...

    This is excellent history that reads like historical fiction.A great description of one my favorite maverick generals - William Tecumseh Sherman. But , also a wonderful depiction of the trials and tribulation of the Civil War s best politician generals - General John A. Logan from sout...

    This book was good. It was well researched and contained some interesting historical nuggets. The author follows to plight of numerous characters and at times it can get cumbersome following all of the characters and bouncing between timelines and geography. The book is a worthwhile re...

    It was not the book I thought it would be. I thought it was a book about Sherman's March to the sea. It kinda is, but it there are other characters with other stories. I don't know a lot about the civil war and this book really did not educate me more. ...

    Great. It tells the story of Sherman's march to the sea not from totally political perspective but a human one. The stories are of lower commanders, soldiers, freed slaves, nurses and more. These characters come to life. The writing style is clear, lucid and informative. ...

    Pretty decent overview Sherman etc. Dad gave me a copy; bday. ...

    Not often that you find new material in the well-mined world of the Civil War but Dickey pulls it off ...

    Interesting book that lays out a lot of personal stories about those who were behind the scenes of the Civil war in a support role (nurses, slaves, cooks) and brings forward their personal stories but knits them together through the event of Sherman's March to the Sea. And my biggest t...

    ?Rising in Flames? walks gingerly down the fine line between textbook and historical narrative. The story follows the men and women who supported Sherman?s March to the Sea, from front line commanders to the women in the field hospitals and at home sending supplies to the troops ...

    This is excellent history that reads like historical fiction.A great description of one my favorite maverick generals - William Tecumseh Sherman. But , also a wonderful depiction of the trials and tribulation of the Civil War s best politician generals - General John A. Logan from sout...

    This book was good. It was well researched and contained some interesting historical nuggets. The author follows to plight of numerous characters and at times it can get cumbersome following all of the characters and bouncing between timelines and geography. The book is a worthwhile re...

    It was not the book I thought it would be. I thought it was a book about Sherman's March to the sea. It kinda is, but it there are other characters with other stories. I don't know a lot about the civil war and this book really did not educate me more. ...

    Great. It tells the story of Sherman's march to the sea not from totally political perspective but a human one. The stories are of lower commanders, soldiers, freed slaves, nurses and more. These characters come to life. The writing style is clear, lucid and informative. ...

    Pretty decent overview Sherman etc. Dad gave me a copy; bday. ...

    Not often that you find new material in the well-mined world of the Civil War but Dickey pulls it off ...
