The Hessians and the other German Auxiliaries of Great Britain in the Revolutionary War

The Hessians and the other German Auxiliaries of Great Britain in the Revolutionary War
by Lowell, Edward J

1-12210

'Much has been made of the fact that 7,000 French soldiers and 19,000 French seamen assisted the United States in the siege of Yorktown, but we have forgotten that a force of 15,000-20,000 Germans served for seven years against us; that more than 29,000 were brought to America for this purpose; that more than 12,000 never returned to Germany.'

This fascinating work (cited in the Harvard Guide to American History) is a must for every student of the Revolution or German-American history, for its depiction of the American Revolution from the German point of view. In addition to solid historical background information, it describes the hardships and experiences of the Hessian soldiers in America from a very personal level, quoting from original German accounts of almost every major and minor engagement of the Revolutionary War, from the year 1776 to the end. Beginning with the Battle of Long Island, this book also provides accounts of Hessian involvement in the occupation of New York and the taking of Fort Washington; Trenton; the winter of 1777; the Brunswickers in Canada; Baroness Riedesel's Journey, 1776 and 1777; Ticonderoga and Bennington; Saratoga; the Brunswickers in captivity; Brandywine, Germantown and Redbank; the Southern Campaign and many others.
