U.S. Army General Phil Sheridan never lost a battle. Against Confederate armies and Indian warriors, he engaged the enemy with a ferocity that forever ended any notions Americans had about war being a chivalrous enterprise. This is the first truly definitive biography of "Little Phil", one of the most effective and controversial soldiers in America's history. Two 8-page inserts; 4 maps.
