Review: The Life of General Francis Marion,: A Celebrated Partisan Officer, in the Revolutionary War, Against the British and Tories in South Carolina and Georgia

User Review  - Tiffin-Seneca Public Library - Goodreads

I was disppointed in this supposed biography of Marion. There's some good information here, but most of the book is about the exploits of the author himself. I'll be picking up The Swamp Fox by Robert Bass instead. Read full review
