American War of Independence Commanders by Rene Chartrand

Book Description

The American War of Independence was a milestone in American history. When the governor of Massachusetts sent British soldiers to seize arms and ammunition collected by the colonists the local militia resisted. This was to be the start of an eight-year war which was fought, not just by the British and the Americans, but by the Germans, Spanish and French as well. This book details the appearance, careers and personalities of commanders on both sides. It covers such figures as George Washington and Lord Cornwallis along with some equally interesting, but lesser known, figures such as Admiral Solano and Thaddeus Kosciuszko.
