You hit the nail on the head - Johnston was an excellent tactician but an incompetent strategist.  He would have kept retreating to Key West in the defense of Atlanta. 

He just could never quite understand how his decisions fit into the bigger picture.  If I were Davis, I would have relieved him from command as well.
