Just when you thought you knew everything about the Revolution, this book offers a new look at the main British strategy aimed at the Hudson Valley.

It gave me much food for thought regarding the primary British war aims of splitting the colonies by taking control of the Hudson. Was it a reasonable strategy or merely wishful thinking from across the ocean in London?

The author also lays out much of the brutality and even war crimes that the British visited upon the areas of America that they occupied (or raided). It is no wonder there was so much antipathy towards Great Britain during the early decades of the Republic.
