Description
 
Examines the Revolutionary War from 3 divergent & distinct vantage points: the battlefields; the Amer. leadership under George Washington; & -- most originally -- that of England, embroiled in controversy over the war. The British lost the war & found themselves overwhelmed by the geographic & time constraints that prevented their military from holding on to the 1,800-mile length of the 13 colonies, from across 3,000 miles of ocean. Many in London realized that Amer. independence was only a matter of time. Yet the British were enveloped in a fantasy world of self-delusion as the war trudged along. As opposition to & frustration with the failing war increased, so did pacifist sentiment for & sympathy with their Amer. cousins. Illustrations.
