New book, 41 pages, MAA018. When George Washington became Commander in Chief of the Congressional Armies in 1775, he took charge of a diverse army consisting of old militias. This book examines the uniforms, equipment, history and organisation of this 'mixed multitude of people', and looks at their role in the American Revolutionary War. The major personalities in the Revolution are examined, as are the divisions of Washington's army and the tactics they used. This interesting study is enhanced by diagrams, portraits and full colour illustrations.
