Publisher's Summary

No part of the country was more contested during the American Revolution than the Hudson River. In 1776 King George III sent the largest amphibious force ever assembled to seize Manhattan and use it as a base from which to push up the Hudson River Valley for a rendezvous at Albany with an impressive army driving down from Canada. George Washington and other patriot leaders shared the king's fixation with the Hudson. In fact one of the few things that scholars have agreed upon is that the British strategy, though disastrously executed, should have been effective. Until now no one has argued that this plan of action was lunacy from the start.

Revolution on the Hudson makes the bold new argument that Britain's attempt to cut off New England never would have worked and ultimately cost the crown her colonies. It unpacks intricate military maneuvers, introduces the personalities presiding over each side's strategy, and reinterprets the vagaries of colonial politics to offer a thrilling response to one of our most vexing historical questions: How could a fledgling nation have defeated the most powerful war machine of the era?

    "Revolution on the Hudson"

    Enjoyed the story as I like history. A bit long but otherwise quite good. Was a bit tedious at times but good insights.

    George Daughan does a masterful job through research and bringing his characters alive . Jonathan Yen is truly interested in his subject matter and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat with his wonderful narration .
    This is a new and fresh view of both sides of the Revolutionary War that any reader will find exciting and intriguing .
