Unconventional warfare at its most ruthless

Remember during the invasion of Panama, when Noriega was holed up in the Apostolci Nunciature, and the American troops set up loudspeakers and blasted rock music around the clock to try to break his will?

It might shed light on why the British finally evacuated South Carolina.

Incidentally, I had no idea until I saw the credits at the end of this clip that Disney’s Swamp Fox series was based on the biography of the same name by Robert Bass, who also wrote books on Thomas Sumter and Banastre Tarleton

All three books contain a fair amount of romanticization and legend, but are still valuable resources on the Revolution.  That’s assuming, of course, that you can still read after listening to the incessant repetition of that song, which could turn even the most ardent history buff into a babbling lunatic.
