"a well put together book that is easy to read, and it makes good use of graphic material. Eutaw Springs is recommended."—The Journal of America's Military Past
"This is a long-overdue study of the Battle of Eutaw Springs, Nathanael Greene's last main force Southern campaign engagement. Drawing from a wealth of resources including new research, archaeology and pension documents, the authors have created an easy reading account of the 8 September 1781 battle that drove the British to the coast. For students of the Revolutionary War, this is must reading because so much focus has been directed at Yorktown where the British abandoned an army instead of the more mobile war in the South where the war was finally won by wearing down the British."—Lawrence Babits, George Washington Distinguished Professor of History, East Carolina University
"Dunkerly and Boland have produced a solid, well-written account of Eutaw Springs that fills a gap in the history of the southern campaigns and provides a strong foundation for further study of this important battle."—North Carolina Historical Review
"a very good analysis of the political, military, and physical environment, with some profiles of a number of interesting people, most notably Nathanael Greene, after Washington the most important American general of the war, though he never won a battle."—New York Military Affairs Symposium Review
