In this sweeping and insightful grand strategic overview of the American Revolution, George Washington's role in orchestrating victory and creating the US Army is highlighted. Washington knew that having and maintaining an army of professional soldiers was the way to win independence. As he fought bitterly with the leaders in Congress over the creation of a regular army, he readied his new army for pitched battle.
