|Just finished this book. A pretty good read but the author really bashed the hell out of Grant, Sherman and even Lincoln. I can't help but think that maybe the author is a Unreconstructed Reb. That being said the book is very informative on General Thomas. Unlike Lee he felt his first loyalty was not to Virginia but to the USA. I've always respected Thomas and this book made me respect him even more. He commanded my gg uncle's XIV Corps of the Army of the Cumberland. I ddin't realize Nashville was defended by a hodgepodge of Union forces thrown together in December, 1864.
