Free read Æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ò Walter Edgar Walter Edgar ò 6 characters Read Partisans and Redcoats The Southern Conflict That Turned the Tide of the American Revolution Werful British fleet swung south towards South Carolina One year later Charleston fell And as King George′s forces pushed inland and upward it appeared the six year old colonial rebellion was doomed to defeat In a stunning work on forgotten history acclaimed historian Walter Edgar takes the American Revolution far beyond Lexington and Concord to re create the pivotal months. This book is probably a 35 There s a lot missing that I wanted to read in this but there s a lot of interesting detail as well The author does a great job of discussing the immigration and societies that formed in the South Carolina backcountry and how they differed from the planter class and the prosperous crowd in the Lowcountry I really enjoyed the sociological aspects of the book versus the military sections of the book and I think that s because that s what the author enjoyed without knowing much of the author There is little focus on the actual major battles in South Carolina but rather the skirmishes that kind of led to the big battles that pushed Cornwallis north chasing Greene I think the author did a great job though explaining the mentality of the tories versus the patriots and what drew people into the conflict Overall I just think the book would have been better with either the author focusing on the people or an author focusing on the actual war but this seemed kind of lacking And it was super short only about 140 150 pages of actual book so to fit what he did I d recommend this for a uick hit on SC Revolutionary War history But for someone who s read a bit about the War I could use a little of all of it

Free read Æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ò Walter Edgar Walter Edgar ò 6 characters Read Partisans and Redcoats The Southern Conflict That Turned the Tide of the American Revolution In a nation′s savage struggle for freedom It is a story of military brilliance and devastating human blunders and the courage of an impossibly outnumbered force of demoralised patriots who suffered terribly at the hands of a merciless enemy yet slowly gained confidence through a series of small triumphs that convinced them their war could be won Alive with incident and colou. A short introduction to the partisan actions in SC following the fall of Charleston in 1780 Edgar provides a really good introduction that sets the stage for a in depth study of the events in SC and NC during the Revolution I recommend it especially if you re getting ready to embark on a study of Marion Sumter and Pickens
