With this examination of the military establishment in colonial Georgia, Johnson fills the largest single gap in the record of the pre-Revolutionary armed forces on the southern frontier. But Militiamen, Rangers, and Redcoats does more. It makes a major contribution to the perennial debate over the military capacity of the citizen-soldier—an issue of special pertinence for the 1990s. Based on a thorough search of the primary sources, this clearly written book also presents students of the era and of the subject with an invaluable and expansive annotated bibliography. Johnson’s study will remain the definitive one for the foreseeable future. --Malcolm Muir, Jr. Austin Peay State University In terms of substance, this work is well researched, well organized, and historically accurate. Better than that, however, is that this historical study is so well told… I recommend this work highly. --C. R. Swint Attorney-at-law James. M. Johnson is a Colonel in the United States Army and an associate professor of History at the United States Military Academy at West Point. A graduate of West Point and the Naval War College, Newport, Rhode Island, Johnson also has degrees in history from Duke University (M.A., Ph.D.)
