HISTORIAN'S TALE

Army Historians and September 11th

What's General Sherman got to do with it? Sherman is central to two very thought-provoking books. Caleb Carr and Victor Davis Hanson draw radically different conclusions about the man and his legacy....

"Lessons of Terror" by Caleb Carr. Shun Sherman and win a meaningful peace.

"An Autumn of War" by Victor Davis Hanson. Embrace Sherman and win a lasting peace.
