I agree with the General here. A disaster is not the same as a senseless bloodletting.

Franklin is a perfect SS. No one in their right mind would have ordered that attack and keep it going for as long as Hood did. There are many authors who believed he ordered the attack to punish his army for what he perceived as failures during the campaign.

That pretty much defined senseless.

The 100th anniversary of the first day on the Somme had me thinking about senseless and bloody attacks.
