McDonough to take on Sherman

Operating at peak output back in the 1980s, historian James Lee McDonough has authored an extensive series of western theater Civil War military studies over his long writing career, to include major works on the battles of Shiloh, Stones River, Chattanooga, Franklin and Nashville (as well as an overview history of the 1862 Kentucky Campaign). While these were fairly well regarded at the time, most have nevertheless been significantly superseded by new works published from the 90s onward. In 2016, W.W. Norton will publish McDonough's Sherman biography titled William Tecumseh Sherman: In the Service of My Country: A Life. No details as of yet but it will apparently come in at a doorstopper size of 832 pages (and the faux pas of having two colons in the title will presumably be rectified at a later date).
