A brilliant account of the proud and ferocious American fighters who stood up to the British forces in savage battles crucial in deciding both the fate of the Carolina colonies and the outcome of the war. "A tense, exciting historical account of a little known chapter of the Revolution, displaying history writing at its best."--Kirkus Reviews "His compelling narrative brings readers closer than ever before to the reality of Revolutionary warfare in the Carolinas."--Raleigh News & Observer. "Buchanan makes the subject come alive like few others I have seen." --Dennis Conrad, Editor, The Nathanael Greene Papers. "John Buchanan offers us a lively, accurate account of a critical period in the War of Independence in the South. Based on numerous printed primary and secondary sources, it deserves a large reading audience." --Don Higginbotham, Professor of History, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Black cloth with gold spine lettering. Illustrated. xii, 452pp., index. Full refund if not satisfied.

This is a history of the British campaign (1780-1781) to recapture the Carolinas during the American Revolutionary War up to Lord Cornwallis's victory at Guilford Courthouse - a bloody campaign and a hollow victory that left the British forces in ruin and paved the way for General Nathanael Greene to win the Carolinas for the Americans.
