    ?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 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...

    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 ...
