After Grant and Sherman, Sheridan rates as the most gifted Union General of the Civil War. However, Sheridan was a division commander until the last year of the war, when he became an Army commander. Sheridan's signal moment come in the Shenandoah Valley, where he exacted a revenge that burned the agriculture region for years to come. He beat up Early often, but never enough to cause the complete extinction of the Confederate Army in the Shenandoah Valley. His subordinates include George Custer, Wesley Merritt, and George Crook. Phil and these men had influence in the US Army until the 1900s. These were influential military men that determined the course of the US Army.

This is an OK book about the last year of battles and Phil's associates. Phil Sheridan played a prominent role in the defeat of the Confederate States. This book shows the last year of battles and the men that played a role in Phil's fame.

This short summary of Sheridan's role in the last year of the Civil War is an interesting introduction to the lives of a remarkable group of largely-forgotten soldiers. Merritt, Mackenzie, Crook, Upton, and Wilson were young, gifted, and tough officers who contributed to Union victory. Custer is remembered today because he blundered at the Little Bighorn. The others are seldom discussed because they died in bed after distinguished military careers both during and after the Civil War. The author does a nice job of educating us about their backgrounds and contributions. Pleasantly written, one finishes the book wanting to know more about this Band of Brothers that Sheridan drew around him in the Shenandoah and at Appomattox.
