Longacre, a retired US Department of Defense historian and author, traces in parallel form the lives of Confederate general Joseph E. Johnston and Union general William Tecumseh Sherman, whose armies fought many times and who eventually came to respect each other and became close friends, particularly in the 1880s when both lived in Washington DC, Sherman as the commanding general of the US Army and Johnston as a congressman from Virginia and US commissioner of railroads. He describes their lives, personalities, battles during the Civil War, military styles, and post-war lives. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
