In this book, David Smith argues that with the British army rapidly dwindling in numbers and facing huge manpower shortages, Washington embarked on a campaign which effectively saw him lose battles whilst producing an ultimately war-winning strategy. Indeed, the New York campaign can be seen as the best chance British forces would ever have of destroying the organized opposition to their power. Illustrated with maps and full colour artwork, the author provides an insight into a uniquely different campaign - where a string of victories led to failure and ultimate defeat, providing a fascinating read for students of military history.
