In 1864, after Union general William Tecumseh Sherman burned Atlanta, he marched his sixty thousand troops east through Georgia to the sea, and then up into the Carolinas. The army fought off Confederate forces and lived off the land, pillaging the Southern plantations, taking cattle and crops for their own, demolishing cities, and accumulating a borne-along population of freed blacks and white refugees until all that remained was the dangerous transient life of the uprooted, the dispossessed, and the triumphant.… (mere)

This is overall a good book. Growing up in Atlanta I heard, from as far back as I remember, the telling of Sherman's March to the Sea. From schoolteachers and older adults as well as from my Savannah relatives, who told that Sherman gave Savannah to Lincoln as a Christmas present. And this well-researched book fills in many of the gaps.

The lives of everyone who were in the path of this march were affected: slaves, plantation owners, townspeople, and soldiers on both sides of the war. Doctorow makes each affected group live through individuals, into whom he breathes a history and a life, decisions and thoughts and dreams. There is a wide-ranging cast of characters and he melds them well.

What I didn't know growing up was that the March did not stop in Savannah: it continued up the eastern seaboard to through Charleston and ended at Raleigh. While it is hard to visualize without maps where the battles and skirmishes were fought, there is great detail in the struggles of human and horse and mule, wagon and cavalry and foot soldier that lends humanity to the history.

E.L. Doctorow schildert in seinem historischen Roman den Feldzug William T. Shermans, der die Truppen der Union in den letzten beiden Kriegsjahren quer durch Georgia, South- und Nort-Carolina führt.

Doctorow schildert darin den Krieg in all seinen Facetten und Gräueln aus verschiedensten Blickwinkeln. Absatzweise gewinnt der Leser Eindrücke von desertierten Südstaaten-Soldaten, freigekommenen Sklaven, fouragierenden Unionstruppen, enteigneten Plantagenbesitzern, Offizieren, den Tross begleitenden Zivilisten, Feldärzten und Poiltikern. Kaum einem Werk gelingt es, das Wesen des Krieges in derartig mannigfaltigen Perspektiven und in erschreckender Deutlichkeit zu schildern. Doctorows Werk bietet mehr als ein klassischer Antikriegsroman. Der Autor stellt die Notwendigkeit des gerechten Krieges zur Diskussion."Der Marsch" beschreibt und warnt, überzeugt daneben mit historischer Akkuranz in literarischer Hinsicht durch die ausgeprägte Charakterstik der vielfältigen Protagonisten.

A very dramatic rendering of a terrible war. My only criticism is that there were so many characters and story lines it became a nuisance trying to follow them all. Have patience, it is worth sticking with it. ( )

Sul finire del 1864 una colonna militare nordista forte di sessantamila uomini attraversa la Georgia, puntando su Savannah. La guida il generale William Tecumseh Sherman, comandante abile ed astuto, intenzionato a dare la spallata decisiva alla resistenza confederata. Il suo passaggio travolge le vite di molte persone, sconvolgendo regole e consuetudini, regalando speranza ad alcuni e togliendola ad altri, senza comunque offrire sicurezze a nessuno, come è regola in una guerra civile. Per la giovane Pearl, schiava figlia di un padrone che non ne ha mai riconosciuta l'esistenza, è l'occasione di uscire da un destino segnato dal disprezzo. Per Arly e Will, soldati confederati attesi da un plotone di esecuzione, è la possibilità di sfuggire ad una condanna che però sembra rincorrerli da un cambio di schieramento all'altro. Nel caso di Emily, figlia di uno stimato giudice che si ritrova d'improvviso senza più alcun riferimento e dovere, diventa una strana avventura al seguito di un chirurgo militare dagli occhi di ghiaccio. E per gli schiavi come Wilma e Coalhouse Walker significa la libertà, quella sognata ed ora, forse, giunta davvero, ma da conquistare a rischio della propria vita. Perché la strada verso Savannah è segnata da odio e vendette, ed è solo l'inizio, visto che Sherman non è tipo da accontentarsi e presa la città, si rimette presto in movimento puntando a nord, verso il cuore della Carolina del sud, incurante di tutto tranne dei propri obiettivi. Nemmeno le proibitive condizioni del terreno riescono a rallentarne l'avanzata, che lo porta rapidamente alla conquista di Columbia, a sua volta lasciata alle spalle dopo un incendio disastroso dalle incerte responsabilità. La marcia prosegue nella Carolina del Nord, col suo carico di rancori e speranze, tra scaramucce sanguinose e paludi infide, legando sempre più strettamente i destini delle persone che vi partecipano. Per Pearl l'incontro con Stephen, giovane soldato newyorkese di origine irlandese, pone una tormentata scelta tra l'amore e la paura di tornare a non essere più padrona del proprio destino. Nel frattempo Arly, perso il compagno Will per uno sfortunato incidente, vede nell'occasione di impersonare un fotografo itinerante l'ispirazione di cui era in attesa, offrendogli l'opportunità di avvicinare Sherman ed ucciderlo. Il tentativo fallisce per poco ed il generale vittorioso può quindi accettare la resa del suo rivale Johnston, una conclusione resa però amara dalla notizia appena giunta dell'assassinio del presidente Lincoln. La strada per la riconciliazione di un paese lacerato dal conflitto si annuncia tormentata, ma per Pearl, Stephen e i loro nuovi compagni si apre finalmente la possibilità di scegliere liberamente il proprio futuro.

Shows war from the individual point of view. A number of characters are put in focus for a chapter and then either die or show up in another chapter. If you are reading this over a length of time, it's easy to forget all the details of who these people are, but if you stick with it you see the trajectory of their lives as they try to survive the chaos. From Rebel soldiers to a Federal surgeon, General Sherman to newly freed slaves, they all are marching through the South. Some will surprise you with their humanity, others with their insanity. War is not glorious, war is bogged down in rain and mud, starving, and insane. Doctorow holds it all together.
I had heard his name before but this is the first book of his I've actually read. I'm impressed enough to look up some of his other works. ( )

At five in the morning someone banging on the door and shouting, her husband, John, leaping out of bed, grabbing his rifle, and Roscoe at the same time roused from the backhouse, his bare feet pounding: Mattie hurriedly pulled on her robe, her mind prepared for the alarm of war, but the heart stricken that it would finally have come, and down the stairs she flew to see through the open door in the lamplight, at the steps of the portico, the two horses, steam rising from their flanks, their heads lifting, their eyes wild, the driver a young darkie with rounded shoulders, showing stolid patience even in this, and the woman standing in her carriage no but her aunt Letitia Pettibone of McDonough, her elderly face drawn in anguish, her hair a straggled mess, this woman of such fine grooming, this dowager who practically ruled the season in Atlanta standing up in the equipage like some hag of doom, which indeed she would prove to be.
