Part of my coursework for the Captain’s Career Course is to help conduct a battle analysis of the Battle of Cowpens from the Revolutionary War. It’s an interesting battle in its own right, but frankly, I really was not that interested in it. Maybe that comes from the fact that it’s basically required reading. Nonetheless, it still counts as a book, so here it is. If you’re interested in a book on the Battle of Cowpens for any reason, I would suggest A Devil of a Whipping instead. If you want the short, reader’s digest version to get a basic feel for what happened (which is exactly what I was looking f0r) then this one, at barely 100 pages, might be your best bet.
