The book not only points up Washington's genius at extending the tenets of the formal warfare of the 18th century, something for which he is rarely credited, but records the civil war between Tory and Patriot (Whig) within that war. It clearly demonstates the strengths and limitations of depending upon the citizen soldier, a lesson relevant today. Since the book deals primarily with the war around the New York metropolitan area, it will be especially interesting to anyone living in the area. I think enough of the book to buy a new copy and give it to our local library. John Higgins

Great Item.

I was excited to read this book however I have to agree with the one other one star review titled "An unreadable, poorly focused study".

You know how it is when you get a new book, pick it up for the first time, and just open it to read whatever it is that first hits your eyes. When I did just that when I opened to the Monmouth section and read how the author claims Clinton was reluctant to give battle and only did so when circumstances forced him to do so. Gag me. Clinton's own writings state the opposite. Clinton was looking for and hoping for a fight. Not what this author claims.

So I was not impressed after reading for the first couple of minutes.

Since then I've gone back several times to the book, reading a chapter here and a chapter there. Some interesting tibits, yes, but unimpressive analysis of key events spoil this, at least for me.
