Shiloh, in hell before night by James L McDonough( Book )

9 editions published between 1976 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If you want to know what it was like to be caught up in a confused Civil War battle complete with a 100,000-man cast, inept generals, missed opportunities, and grim humor amid suffering and death, here is your chance. McDonough has done a fine job of research which, for all that, recaptures the agony of Shiloh ("A place of peace") in twelve highly readable chapters...The author's special skill, however, is his use of revealing, perceptive quotes from the mouths of the participants so as to make this controversial slaughter come alive over a century later." -- The Virginia Quarterly Review

William Tecumseh Sherman : in the service of my country : a life by James L McDonough( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A major new biography of one of America's most storied military figures. General Sherman's 1864 burning of Atlanta solidified his legacy as a ruthless leader. Yet Sherman proved far more complex than his legendary military tactics reveal. James Lee McDonough offers fresh insight into a man tormented by the fear that history would pass him by, who was plagued by personal debts, and who lived much of his life separated from his family. As a soldier, Sherman evolved from a spirited student at West Point into a general who steered the Civil War's most decisive campaigns, rendered here in graphic detail. Lamenting casualties, Sherman sought the war's swift end by devastating Southern resources in the Carolinas and on his famous March to the Sea. This meticulously researched biography explores Sherman's warm friendship with Ulysses S. Grant, his strained relationship with his wife, Ellen, and his unassuageable grief over the death of his young son, Willy. The result is a remarkable, comprehensive life of an American icon whose legacy resonates to this day."

Nashville : the western Confederacy's final gamble by James L McDonough( Book )

"After Major General William Tecumseh Sherman's forces ravaged Atlanta in 1864, Ulysses S. Grant urged him to complete the primary mission Grant had given him: to destroy the Confederate Army in Georgia. Attempting to draw the Union army north, General John Bell Hood's Confederate forces focused their attacks on Sherman's supply line, the railroad from Chattanooga, and then moved across north Alabama and into Tennessee. As Sherman initially followed Hood's men to protect the railroad, Hood hoped to lure the Union forces out of the lower South and, perhaps more important, to recapture the long-occupied city of Nashville."

The Civil War career of John M. Schofield by James L McDonough( Book )

6 editions published between 1966 and 1975 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Details the career of the Union General John M. Schofield from the Civil War beginning to the last months of the war. Schofield can not be pictured as a brilliant strategist; he did not have the opportunity, except on rare occasions, to conduct independent campaigns. Even when commanding prior to the Battle of Franklin (Tennessee), he was basically following instructions from Major General George H. Thomas. Although he does not deserve to rank with the foremost Union generals, such as Grant and Sherman, his ability does compare favorable with generals such as McPherson and Thomas, who exercised commands similar to his own. Schofield did not possess the kind of personality which inspired fighting men as Thomas did, or, in a somewhat different way, Confederate General Nathan Forrest did. There is no question that he was a good, dependable subordinate officer. His record as commander of the Army of the Ohio in Sherman's Atlanta campaign provides a more than adequate example of the fact
