Susansweet2:

    Glad to ma'am. 

    Please go to http://www.hoodslasthurrah.com/two.htm where I have written a 5,000 word review of Sword's The Confederacy's Last Hurrah.  The review chronicles, in detail, Sword's numerous errors, omissions, misrepresentations, and half-truths in regards to Gen. Hood.

    There are many other errors and misrepresentations by Sword that I did not include; some that I thought might be over-kill (although Sword didn't hold back on over-killing Gen. Hood), and others that I didn't discover until recently, such as Sword's undeniably incorrect Confederate casualty figures for the Tennessee Campaign.

     I am sincerely impressed with your desire to make your own independent assessment of Gen. Hood's conduct of the Tennessee Campaign.  Sword's literary skills are so eloquent and mesmerizing that it is difficult to be skeptical of his historiography.
