The focus of this book is the operations of the Continental Army in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in 1777/78, under the direct command of General George Washington. We’ll examine Washington’s victories at Trenton, Princeton, Whitemarsh and Monmouth, as well as his defeats at Brandywine and Germantown. And, we’ll examine the miracle of Valley Forge, where a former Prussian officer turned the Continentals into an army to be reckoned with. 1777/78 proved that the Continental Army could go head to head with the British (and their allies the Hessians), and hold their own. And it proved that Washington was one of the great generals of the era. This edition contains 40+ photos, maps and engravings.
