Summary
"Though successful and heralded by historians, Thomas never achieved the fame of Grant, Lee, Jackson or Sherman. His Southern birth, fellows' ambition, and less-publicized battles kept him from recognition. Biography focuses on the military career that covered such battlegrounds as Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge and Nashville, and political maneuvers that kept Thomas out of the spotlight"--Provided by publisher
