Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Osprey's examination of the Saratoga campaign, which was a watershed, and is widely believed to have been the turning point of the American War of Independence (1775-1783). For the first time British regulars were beaten in open battle by equal numbers of Americans. The Continentals bore the brunt of the fighting, supported by 'hordes' of militia who proved adept at attacking detachments or lines of communication.The after-shock in America (on both sides) and Europe transformed a civil war into a global struggle against the two colonial superpowers of the day, France and Spain, and eventually lost George III his American colonies.

Synopsis:

This campaign is widely believed to have been the turning point in the American battle of independence. British expeditions from New York and Lake Ontario were both turned back leaving General Burgoyne's 11,000 men exposed in the Hudson Valley. The advance was a logistic nightmare and painfully slow. After engagements at Freeman's farm and Bemis Heights Burgoyne's men were forced to surrender at Saratoga.

Synopsis:

Widely believed to be the turning point in the American War of Independence, at Saratoga General Burgoyne's men were forced to surrender. The colour maps, battle charts and artwork accompanying the text detail this crucial campaign.
