Description:
New book, 454 pages. On September 15, 1776, the British Army under General William Howe invaded Manhattan Island with the largest expeditionary force in its history. George Washington's Continental Army, still in disarray after the disastrous Battle of Brooklyn some two weeks earlier, retreated north to Harlem Heights, leaving New York in British hands. Contol of the city was Howe's primary objective. Located at the mouth of the strategically vital Hudson river, it had become the centerpiece of England's strategy for putting down the American rebellion. However as this book reveals, far from furnishing the key to the colonies, New York proved to be the fatal chalice that poisoned the British war effort.
