Abstract:

Known as 'The Swamp Fox, ' Francis Marion employed a violent brand of guerrilla tactics against the British in the lowlands of South Carolina, where he and his irregular force are credited with preventing the colony from completely succumbing to the Crown after the capture of Charleston in May 1780. Scott Aiken contends that Marion's call to action both militarily and politically stopped the momentum needed by the British to conquer the South. Aiken describes Marion's partisan actions as the forerunners of tactics common to today's global security environment, and provides readers not only with a better understanding of tactics and strategies used during the American Revolution, but also with an understanding of how they apply to 21st century conflicts.
