Really enjoyed this book on the life and legend of Francis Marion. Appreciate the fact the author was fair in his take on the person Francis Marion. Would most certainly recommend this to anyone who is interested in history.

Performance: Very good, no issues.
Content: I purchased this book since I knew little of the American Revolution in this "theater" or in the Southern Colonies. It was interesting to read more about this person's life, his motivations, and his tactics. Like the Washington, his tactics and actions range from the tactical level to the operational / strategic ... that is it affected the outcome of the war by tying down British forces in the countryside; a goal of all weaker forces and insurgents. Finally, the discussion on French Huguenot roots, customs, and relations were interesting and unknown to me before this novel. His physical description and personal life are very out of step with the traditional tall, dashing figures we see in many leaders.
