Description - Monmouth Courthouse 1778 by Brendan Morrissey

In June 1778, Clinton decided to evacuate his army from Philadelphia to New York. Washington sent almost half his army to strike at the rear of the British when Clinton moved out of Monmouth Courthouse. However, confusion among Lee's troops led to their attacks being repulsed. Washington himself later withstood a series of powerful British attacks but the heat and lack of water led to the battle petering out. The battle was the last major action in the Northern theatre, and also the longest and hardest-fought engagement of the entire Revolutionary War. This book analyses this crucial battle which has until now been shrouded in confusion and obscurity.
