A 43rd Ranger described their attack on a line of Union Cavalry: “We struck their line like a hurricane!” Mosby’s 43rd Partisan Rangers were the elite “Special Forces” of their day. Using innovative hit-and-run guerilla tactics, they rode into battle on the swiftest of Virginia’s blooded horses and, equipped with the finest arms of the day, struck their quarry with overwhelming force. Authoritative and insightful, “Like a Hurricane” is told largely through the visceral, stirring, and sometimes humorous accounts of Mosby and his 43rd Rangers in their own words. The secrets of their victories, their setbacks, their little known, most audacious adventures, and bold exploits are candidly and vividly recounted herein. Now, let’s saddle up and ride back in time with Mosby and his intrepid 43rd Partisan Rangers!
