Today, the United States has the finest and most capable collection of Special Operations Force (SOF) units in the world. But few Americans realize the modest start the U.S. SOF had during the Revolutionary War. One of the key personalities in America's budding SOF community was a South Carolina militia commander named Francis Marion. Called the "Swamp Fox" by both friends and foe, Merion was one of the pioneers of American guerrilla warfare, and a scourge on the British forces in the Carolinas. Along the way, the “Swamp Fox” became a legend in his own time, and a household name across the colonies.

 To learn more about Francis Marion and his style of war, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press author Col. Scott Aiken, USMC, who will talk about France's Marion and his new book, The Swamp Fox. Please join us for what promises to be an intriguing show, and call in if you'd like to talk to the author and Mr. Gresham.
