If you are looking for a detailed account of the Cowpens and/or Guilford Courthouse battles, look elsewhere (I much prefer Babit's "A Devil of a Whipping" for Cowpens). But there is a fair amount of detail of the marching and skirmishing between the two. Unfortunately, the few maps do little to support the text. The Guilford Courthouse map is cramped by trying to show the entire battle on one page and DOESN'T HAVE A SCALE. Considering that an entire chapter is devoted to Cowan's Ford, one might expect it to show up somewhere on a map. It would also have been nice to see the march routes on a map. The primary redeeming social value of the book is the last chapter on "The Lessons." The author does some quality analysis of what could have been learned.
