Although at first blush the title of John Oller’s The Swamp Fox: How Francis Marion Saved the American Revolution seems a bit hyperbolic, but after reading it, I agree. An excellent book that describes the exploits of one of the saviors of the American Revolution in the South.
It is not the type of biography to lay out the basic facts in a straightforward way, but it is an engaging and insightful way to think about this larger than life character. “Deceptively brief and seemingly lightweight, this wonderful work effectively cuts through decades of hyperbole.”
