This month we have 5 copies of The Men Who Lost America to be won!
In 1781, the British Empire suffered its most devastating defeat in a war that most believed Britain ought to have won. Common wisdom has held that incompetent military commanders and political leaders in London must have been to blame, their arrogant confidence and outdated tactics proving no match for the innovative and determined Americans. But this is far from the truth. Weaving together the personal stories of ten prominent men who directed the British war effort, Andrew O’Shaughnessy dispels the myths, emerging with a very different and much richer account of the conflict – one driven by able and at times even brilliant leadership.
‘Splendid…turns everything you ever thought you knew about why the British lost the Revolutionary War on its head.’
Andrew Roberts, broadcaster and author of The Storm of War
