Deadlocked in the north, the American Revolution's conflict shifted south in 1780.  Author David Higgins primarily concentrates his narrative on rebel guerrilla commander Francis Marion's raids targeting British regulars and loyalists in the 42nd volume of Osprey's "Raid" series.  Illustrations and photographs augment the author's text. Coverage includes:

  • Introduction
  • Origins
  • Initial Strategy
  • The Plan
  • The Raid
  • Analysis
  • Conclusion
  • Bibliography
  • Index

Another recommended Osprey publication.
