A 50-page chapter in this history of America and Guerrilla Warfare discusses jayhawkers and bushwhackers in Missouri and Mosby's Rangers in Virginia. Other chapters address the American Revolution and 20th century conflicts overseas. During the American Revolution and U.S. Civil War, Americans demonstrated great prowess as guerrillas, the author concludes, adding that only the moral and physical exhaustion of the South, and generous peace terms offered by the North, prevented the defeated Confederates from turning to guerrilla resistance.
