Wade Hampton's Iron Scouts: Confederate Special Forces
Or buy the eBook from one of these retailers
Serving from late 1862 to the war's end, Wade Hampton's Scouts were a key component of the comprehensive intelligence network designed by Generals Robert E. Lee, J.E.B. Stuart and Wade Hampton. The Scouts were stationed behind enemy lines on a permanent basis and provided critical military intelligence to their generals. They became proficient in “unconventional” warfare and emerged unscathed in so many close-combat actions that their foes grudgingly dubbed them Hampton's “Iron Scouts.” Author D. Michael Thomas presents the previously untold story of the Iron Scouts for the first time.
