Summary

This new book examines the strategies pursued by the American Colonies, Great Britain, France, Spain, and Holland, and the League of Armed Neutrality, placing the War for Independence in its proper global context. It shows how 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, examining how each nation prosecuted their respective wars provides lessons for current students of strategic studies and military and naval history. The strategies of the participants are clearly presented in articles that have become standards for students of the conflict, as well as new essays written specifically for this volume.
