Philadelphia 1777 : Taking the Capital Paperback / softback
Illustrated by Stephen Walsh
Part of the Campaign series
A turning point in the War of Independence, the campaign for Philadelphia, set in motion a series of events leading to the defeat of the British and eventual independence for the emerging American nation.
From the landing of General William Howe's army at the head of the Elk River, to his eventual capture of Philadelphia, the campaign included some fascinating battles.
The initial engagement at Brandywine, the Paoli Massacre and the missed opportunity at Germantown are all examined in detail by Justin Clement, with supporting maps, original artwork and photographs.
Recently discovered information about the battle of Brandywine and analysis of the major personalities involved completes this comprehensive account of an important episode in the American War of Independence.
