Publisher's Summary

A revered citizen-soldier of the American Revolutionary War, South Carolina-born Francis Marion has been dubbed by some the "father of the U.S. Army Special Forces." This innovative patriot earned the nickname the "Swamp Fox" from a British colonel who all too often lost track of Marion when the clever soldier made stealthy retreats into American swamp lands.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If you like discussions of long-ago battles in obscure Carolina counties, you'll like this book. It is notable for what it did not cover: childhood development, family life, outlook on life...what's in the man?

What was most disappointing about Louis P. Towles’s story?

This underresearched book did not meet my needs because it did not tell much of the story about Francis Marion, the man.

Have you listened to any of Benjamin Becker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Reader read right.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I learned about Francis Marion's battles.
