    During the Civil War, Sherman employed "total war" a strategy where you destroy everything food, railroads, supplies in an attempt to hurt you're enemy enough to make them surrender. What are you're opinions on this and do you think it was a good idea?

    The goal of any war is to make your enemy to give up with as little loss as possible on your own side. This can only be achieved if you hurt your enemy's logistic, supplies. Of course it is a good idea to disrupt the enemy's ability to keep fighting. Otherwise you might face tougher battles and the war can drag on for much longer time with more casualties on both sides.
