This book is a good primer covering the whole situation in the South through Yorktown. The first six chapters set the stage in the South from 1776 to 1780. The seventh chapter picks up at the second siege of Charleston, South Carolina and the remaining chapters carry through to Yorktown, which is the time period that is central to The Patriot.

It really reads like a string of book reports covering the major events in the South. It's a good starting point for one's research. It's very broad in its descriptions, offering few anecdotes and the barest of biographical information on the principles figures. As a result it is an easy and quick read, even when describing battle lines and movements.
