About the Book
In Nothing but Blood and Slaughter Volume Four the British realized that the war in America was costing too much money, too many lives and there was nothing to show for it except a few captured coastal cities. Though the British controlled these cities, they were besieged by Patriot forces and were not able to move freely.

The British began to discuss a way to end the war with the Americans. As the war wound down the British conducted raids into the neighboring countryside, looking for food, forage and other supplies that would be needed when it came time to leave and fight the French. These raids led to bloody little fights that left men wounded or dieing in the Carolina fields.

Seeing that the end of British dominance was near, bands of Loyalists struck against those who had tried to kill them for the last seven years. Not to be outdone, the Patriot guerillas struck a final blow against any Loyalists who had sided with the King. This true civil war would leave everlasting memories that would shape the politics of the 19th century.

Nothing but Blood and Slaughter Volume Four is the final volume of four that attempts to chronicle every single military action in the Carolinas and Georgia. Included in this book is a biography of the key leaders of the war, letting the reader know what happened next. Also included in this book is a calendar of the seven years of the war in the Carolinas, allowing the reader to observe the "big picture" and place battles and skirmishes into context.
