Thrilling but Pointless

I guess that's one way to describe Jo Shelby's "Great Raid" into Missouri in 1863. Two short works on the subject have been published, Mark Scott's The Fifth Season: General "Jo" Shelby's Great Raid of 1863 and Ride Around Missouri: Shelby's Great Raid 1863 by Sean McLachlan, but the US Army Command and General Staff College has also just made available a print version of Patrick Feild's Master's Thesis Thrilling but Pointless: General "Jo" Shelby's 1863 Cavalry Raid. It's also available as a free digital download from here.
