Patriot Battles: How the War of Independence Was Fought Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Stephenson's Patriot Battles is a comprehensive and richly detailed study of the military aspects of the War of Independence, and a fascinating look at the nuts and bolts of eighteenth-century combat. Covering everything from what motivated those who chose to fight to how they were enlisted, trained, clothed, and fed, it offers a close-up view of the war's greatest battles, with maps provided for each. Along the way many cherished myths are challenged, reputations are reassessed, and long-held assumptions are tested.

One of the most satisfying and illuminating contributions to the literature on the War of Independence in many years, Patriot Battles is a vastly entertaining work of superior scholarship and a refreshing wind blowing through some of American history's dustier corridors.

Synopsis:

"Patriot Battles" is a comprehensive, in-depth single volume study of the military aspects of the American Revolution. Stephenson provides a richly detailed examination of the players and their motivation and, in the process, challenges many cherished myths.
