Washington’s Revolutionary War Generals by Stephen R. Taaffe. Campaigns and Commanders Series, Volume 68. (Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 2019).

A bit edgy, I believe the historical record does not support the author’s fundamental thesis.  However, the book makes many very good observations and is a welcome addition to an underreported subject. I recommend the book to those interested in leadership and politics with many contemporary lessons to be gleaned.

As with any controversy, the last word has not been written.  Stephen Taaffe cogently states at the end of the book, “the evaluation of generals is very tricky.” So true!
