Here is my review of the above book.
War like the ThunderBolt, The Battle and Burning of Atlanta
By Russell S. Bonds
Mr. Bonds has done an excellent job detailing the battle that happen around the City of Atlanta while General Sherman was on his mission to destroy the war resources of the Confederacy. There are highly detailed descriptions of the battles and of some of the soldiers themselves. There are also some great maps for the battles that show modern roads in relation to troop movements, entrenchments, etc. This was a book I could hardly put down. I really like the personal aspects added to the book that come from diaries and letters of participants and onlookers alike. I highly recommend this book if you are a history buff and are interested in the actions that took place in and around Atlanta in the summer of 1864.
