9780415695688: Strategy in the American War of Independence: A Global Approach (Cass Military Studies)

This book examines the strategies pursued by the Colonies and the other combatants in the American War for Independence, placing the conflict in its proper global context.

Many do not realize the extent to which the 1775 colonial rebellion against British rule escalated into a global conflict. Collectively, this volume examines the strategies pursued by the American Colonies, Great Britain, France, Spain, and Holland, and the League of Armed Neutrality, placing the military, naval, and diplomatic elements of the struggle in their proper global context. Moreover, assessing how each nation prosecuted their respective wars provides lessons for current students of strategic studies and military and naval history.

This book will be of great interest to students of strategic studies, American history, Military History and political science in general.

Donald Stoker is Professor of Strategy and Policy for the US Naval War College’s Monterey Program in Monterey, California. He joined the Strategy and Policy faculty in 1999 and has taught both in Monterey and Newport.

Kenneth J. Hagan, Professor Emeritus, the U.S. Naval Academy, is currently Professor of Strategy and Policy for the U.S. Naval War College’s Monterey Program.

Michael T. McMaster is a Professor at the U.S. Naval War College in Monterey. He is a retired U.S. Navy Commander.

Review:

‘A thoroughly competent, multifaceted collection of essays that throw light on a complex campaign and which, as a bonus for modernists, raise uncomfortable questions about current campaigns as well.’ Geoffrey Till, Diplomacy & Statecraft, Vol. 22, 2, June 2011

 

'...the book provides a unique product that contains insightful analysis for those attempting to understand the strategic context of the American Revolution from the perspectives of both major and minor participants.' - Journal of Strategic Studies, Vol. 34, No. 2, 283, April 2011

 

'All of the essays are interesting, scholarly and engaging. The editors have performed an excellent job in avoiding the repetition or duplication of material. The volume will be of great use to lecturers teaching third-year undergraduate and postgraduate courses; the engaged general reader will find much of interest in it. Perhaps the only criticism that can be made would be that some idea of what "strategy" might have meant to Washington or Greene would have made an interesting chapter: an exploration of their understanding of history and war might have been illuminating.' Philip Williams, The Northern Mariner/Le Marin du Nord

 

'Strategy in the American War of Independence will prove valuable reading for anyone seriously interested in the Revolutionary War or strategy.' Albert Nofi, The NYMAS Review
