Review for The Guerrilla Hunters
"This fine new book presents a balanced, authoritative look at the partisan warfare, both authorized and unauthorized, and how it shaped the policies and actions of the Federal government and Richmond. These “little wars” were not mere sidelights; in many cases, they helped dictate what the main armies were doing and the overall strategy and tactics." — Scott Mingus (Cannonball)
