After a series of devastating losses and retreats, General George Washington ultimately led the colonial armies to triumph over one of the most formidable imperial powers in history. Celebrated military historian Jeremy Black surveys Washington’s distinguished leadership qualities and examines the forces—both internal and external—that aided Washington in his arduous path to victory. Jeremy Black is Professor of History at University of Exeter and a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. He is the author of over 100 books on war and diplomacy.
