William T. Sherman: Evolution of an Operational ArtistARMY COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLL FORT LEAVENWORTH KS SCHOOL OF ADVANCED MILITARY STUDIES; Jackowski, Steven E (2013-05-23)This historical narrative describes the evolution of Major General William T. Sherman's conceptualization and implementation of operational art. The narrative views his operational approach through the lens of modern U.S. Army doctrine, specifically, operational art as defined by Unified Land Operations and Mission Command. The monograph delves into Sherman's education, experience, and development as an operational artist under the tutelage of Major General Henry W. Halleck and Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant, and then analyzes the application of that art in his later campaigns. The relevance of Sherman's evolution resonates in today's Army. That an officer can develop from a tactician to an operational artist through self and institutional education, senior mentorship, and relevant combat and training experience is telling. How did Sherman overcome his lackluster beginnings and transform himself into an inspiring figurehead studied throughout the world for his military accomplishments? By analyzing Sherman's battles and campaigns from 1861 to 1865, the monograph delves into his transformation by exploring his visualization and understanding of operational art through the lens of current United States Army doctrine.
