Sherman's March and Vietnam

By James Reston, Jr.
Macmillan, 1985
323 pp. $14.95

An eloquent and unconventional book-part journalism, part history-and throughout a lament against war waged without discrimination or proportionality, a phenomenon which ties Sherman in Georgia to free-fire zones in Vietnam. This is an indictment of leaders and of society as a whole, not of the soldiers of either war.
