Shipping and the American War 1775-83 : A Study of British Transport Organization Hardback

Part of the History: Bloomsbury Academic Collections series

Description

Showing the complex interaction of strategy, logistics, administration, and economics, Syrett's pioneering text brings to light some basic causes for the ultimate failure of the British war effort during the American War of Independence. This war effort was fatally compromised by the British need to support a great army and a large naval force in the western hemisphere while at the same time facing a coalition of maritime powers on the European continent.
