Nice try History Channel! In a more modern context, to win in Iraq, we need to plunder all the valuables from Iraqi citizens, burn Baghdad and Mosul to the ground, destroy any food we can’t carry off to assure the starvation all who remain, rape their women, murder innocent civilians and prisoners in reprisal for roadside bombings, tell the Kurds they are free, then drown them in the Tigris river, etc. Wage war against the civilian population. Too bad Sherman didn’t have journalists traveling with him to put a better spin on things.
Face it, by any sane person’s standards, Sherman was and IS STILL a WAR CRIMINAL of major proportions. "Justified" my a$$!!!
I need to wait a few days before I mail anything.
