cavalryman of the american revolution. Anthony Scotti has finally separated fact from fantasy and has shown that his style of warfare was typical of his time. In fact his counterpart on the American side was Light Horse Harry Lee, whose style was the same. Both were "brutal" in their method of fighting. Since Tarleton was on the losing side, he has been demonized. Lee on the other side is considered an American hero. This book is a
very welcome addition to the literature on the American Revolution and is an excellent read. It should be in everone's library who has any interest in this war.
An indispensable, extremely well-written and exhaustively researched book.
True that there are few, if any, real saints or demons in history, but Mr. Scotti blows away the lingering perception of "devil incarnate" of Ban Tarleton. Highly, highly recommended to anyone interested in this era and Tarleton. Bravo.
Sadly most people's opinion have been formed by the character in Mel Gibson's The Patriot.
The author provides superb footnotes for the information presented for further reading or research.
I strongly recommend the book and while we are on the subject may I also recommend the very excellent web site banastretarleton.org

I've always been fascinated by Banastre Tarleton, the man upon whom "Colonel Tavington" in the movie "The Patriot" was based. This book is a well-written biography.Published on August 23, 2006 by FUBAR919
