FATAL SUNDAY: George Washington, the Monmouth Campaign, and the Politics of Battle

FATAL SUNDAY: George Washington, the Monmouth Campaign, and the Politics of Battle
by Lender, Mark Edward and Stone, Gary Wheeler

2-211830

Fought on Sunday, June 28, 1778, the Battle of Monmouth was critical to the success of the Revolution. It also marked a decisive turning point in the military career of George Washington. Without the victory at Monmouth Courthouse, Washington's critics might well have marshaled the political strength to replace him as the American commander-in-chief. Replete with poignant anecdotes, folkloric incidents, and stories of heroism and combat brutality; filled with behind-the-scenes action and intrigue; and teeming with characters from all walks of life. Includes 15 b/w illustrations and 18 maps.

Includes both American and British perspectives of the battle. Criticism of Washington's performance in command was considerably broader and deeper than previously acknowledged. In light of long-standing practical and ideological questions about his vision for the Continental Army and his ability to win the war, the outcome at Monmouth -- a hard-fought tactical draw -- was politically insufficient for Washington. The general's partisans, determined that the battle for public opinion would be won in his favor, engineered a propaganda victory for their chief that involved the spectacular court martial of Major General Charles Lee, the second-ranking officer of the Continental Army.
