Taking us on a journey through the ravaged Confederacy to the once-vibrant city of Nashville-where General Hood makes a last, futile attempt to preserve the Confederacy-Shrouds of Glory brings the reader into the general's tent, where Grant, Sherman, Lee, and others plot their often unorthodox strategies for winning the war. Groom paints vivid portraits of Hood and his nemeses, revealing the character, faults, emotions, and most of all the doubts that molded the course of conflict."@en ;
