“McLachlan gives a thorough overview of the strategic situation, the troops involved in the raid, some insight into Jo Shelby’s personality and previous experience, and the Northern (and Southern) reaction to the daring incursion. Lavishly illustrated, like all Osprey books, Ride Around Missouri includes an array of vintage period photographs, original maps commissioned for the book, bird’s-eye views, first-person accounts drawn from primary sources, and the usual excellent color illustrations of men, uniforms, equipment, and events.” -Scott Mingus, Charge! Civil War Wargaming

Sean McLachlan’s rapid paced and blow-by-blow account of Confederate Colonel Joseph O. Shelby’s audacious cavalry raid through Union occupied Missouri in 1863 brings to light a largely overlooked, but fascinating, military operation of the American Civil War.. no history of the horse soldiers and their cavalry operations during the Civil War would be complete without this interesting account of J.O. Shelby’s Raid around Missouri.” – Ron Stowers, Jackson Civil War Round Table
