WAGING WAR IN AMERICA 1775-1783: Operational Challenges

WAGING WAR IN AMERICA 1775-1783: Operational Challenges
by Hagist, Don editor

1-241900

Collection of essays examines various aspects of the problems faced by combatants in the 1775-1783 American War for Independence and the solutions that they achieved -- British training of regulars and raising of Loyalist militia, German adaptation of tactics, French and Spanish logistics and campaigning, and American recruiting and conscription.

The European forces adapted much more readily than they are given credit for to the needs of this particular conflict. The British Army adopted a doctrine of open-order light infantry tactics and raised large numbers of Loyalist troops in the theater of war. The British government obtained the assistance of regiments from several German states, established military organizations that relied heavily on specialized skirmishing troops and chasseur companies composed of picked men after the fashion of the British light infantry. The French government sent an expeditionary force from its regular army, while Spain largely employed colonial troops from its North American holdings; each of these armies faced significant logistical challenges while mounting major campaigns. Not least, of course, the American colonies rose to the monumental task of recruiting, training, and supplying an army created specifically for the conflict.
