About this title

Synopsis:

A stirring account of the English military campaign led by General Sir William Howe against Philadelphia, the winter encampment of George Washington's Continental Army at Valley Forge, and the American victory at the Battle of Monmouth in June of 1778. This work draws extensively on the journals and remembrances of the soldiers who fought on both sides, putting the reader right in the thick of the action. Little known facts and amusing anecdotes about the principal participants in the campaign flesh out the characters of historical figures such as the brothers Howe, Friedrich Steuben, Horatio Gates, the Marquis de Lafayette and George Washington. Highlighted are the internal struggles of the opposing chains of command. In-depth analysis of developing American military capability, battlefield strategy, and soldiers' narratives richly illustrate the uncertainty of the American cause and champion the perseverance and valor of the fighting men on both sides of the English defeat at Monmouth.
