In the name of God and country : reconsidering terrorism in American history by Michael Fellman( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With insight and originality, Michael Fellman argues that terrorism, in various forms, has been a constant and driving force in American history. In part, this is due to the nature of American republicanism and Protestant Christianity, which he believes contain a core of moral absolutism and self-righteousness that perpetrators of terrorism use to justify their actions. Fellman also argues that there is an intrinsic relationship between terrorist acts by non-state groups and responses on the part of the state; unlike many observers, he believes that both the action and the reaction constitute terrorism. Fellman's compelling narrative focuses on five key episodes: John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry; terrorism during the American Civil War, especially race warfare and guerrilla warfare; the organized "White Line" paramilitary destruction of Reconstruction in Mississippi; the Haymarket Affair and its aftermath; and the Philippine-American war of 1899-1902. In an epilogue, he applies this history to illuminate the Bush-Cheney administration's use of terrorism in the so-called war on terror. In the Name of God and Country demonstrates the centrality of terrorism in shaping America even to this day"--Jacket
Citizen Sherman : a life of William Tecumseh Sherman by Michael Fellman( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than any other Union general, Sherman was capable of conducting mass psychological warfare in order to break the heart of the Confederacy. Sherman succeeded in large measure because he could plumb and enact his own rage with ruthless clarity. The inner nature of Sherman's genius for destruction forms the center of Citizen Sherman. But this biography is much broader than an analysis of war from Sherman's perspective, for Michael Fellman seeks to illuminate the emotional as well as the intellectual, ideological, and occupational lives of this extraordinary, but at the same time representative, American Victorian man. It was men like Sherman, statesmen of the sword, who beat the Confederacy and destroyed the Indian nations, and Michael Fellman examines, with both detachment and compassion, how such men equipped themselves to secure American nationalism

Memoirs of General W.T. Sherman by William T Sherman( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Tecumseh Sherman has been called the first modern general. According to military historian B.H. Liddell Hart, he understood before his contemporaries that wars and battles would be won "more by the movement of troops than by fighting." Also modern is his unsentimental view of combat, epitomized in his famous remark that "War is Hell." And he was an able enough historian to realize that the Civil War - - and indeed all future wars - - would be unlike anything the world had ever seen: a bitter national struggle between the free people that would involve a campaign of terror against combatant and non-combatant alike. His 'Memoirs, ' which rank with Grant's as the greatest of the Civil War, concern for the most part the strategy and fighting at Bull Run, Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Atlanta, and of course the march through Georgia which earned Sherman his reputation for ruthlessness. It is a story packed with incident as well as swift sketches of his opponents, subordinates, and superiors, and it is endlessly instructive about the lessons of the war. Most of all, it is a compelling narrative about a national tragedy

" ... Ron Coddington has gathered the portraits of dozens of ordinary soldiers-junior officers and enlisted men ... giving us a portrait gallery of Union soldiers on the brink of a war that would change their lives forever, whatever their physical fate ... he has traced down the life histories of these men and tells us about their wartime and postwar experiences, their stories often ending in death by battle and disease or from postwar wounds, or continuing in more ordinary ways until death in bed, years or decades later. Although many of these men returned home after the war, others stayed restless, wandering the United States in search of greater opportunities, sometimes with a modicum of success, sometimes without."--Page ix

This terrible war : the Civil War and its aftermath by Michael Fellman( Recording )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[This] book provides an analysis of the United States in the time leading up to the war the slavery debate, the differences between North and South, the economic and social climate of the country and moves into the war itself, presenting stories of both common soldiers and powerful military figures. The authors also trace the impact and eventual abolition of slavery, examining the role of African-Americans during the war. They conclude that the victory of the North resulted from superior resources and manpower, but also examine other contributing factors providing a well-rounded, interesting and thorough analysis. The final section of the book describes the aftermath of the war, and the Epilogue examines how Americans have remembered the Civil War in later years. Ideal for anyone interested in the United States Civil War or US military history in general.-http://www.amazon.com
