5.0 out of 5 stars REVELATORY BOOK., 29 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Men Who Lost America: British Command during the Revolutionary War and the Preservation of the Empire (Hardcover)
A great intelligent read, detailed but not too difficult. Unusual view of the American revolutionary war but thankfully unbiased. Reading history I like to know what the main characters are REALLY like (I'm not fond of Hero's) and was surprised by Admiral Rodney's behaviour, always in debt hiding in France of all places to avoid his creditors & the barbaric treatment of the people of St. Eustatius. Rodney is famous for his great victory over De Grasse at the Saintes in 1782 but was absent the previous year when the French Admiral obstructed the British fleet at the little known Battle of the Chesapeake Capes 1781, a naval encounter that turned out to have tremendous importance in the American war . If your interested in the American Revolution this book will surprise & entertain you.
