The March

Doctorow, E.L.(2005)
The March

E.L. Doctorow’s masterful storytelling brings to life the famous Civil War march of General William T. Sherman’s “march to the sea.” Through vivid characterization, readers follow both real and fictional soldiers and civilians across Georgia to Savannah, then north through the Carolinas. The effect of the war on the individual characters is told with pathos and sometimes humor. Yet the central character is the Union Army itself, growing from a motley assortment of men into a destructive force of nature, devouring all in its path and changing lives and history forever. Bold and compelling, this re-creation will appeal to Civil War aficionados as well as fans of great stories well told.
