7 Schecter, Barnet The Battle for New York. the City At the Heart of the American Revolution. [Signed]
New York Walker Books 2002 0802713742 / 9780802713742 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
448 pages, illustrations, maps, map endpapers, dust jacket, very good. From Library Journal: "Schecter, a professional writer and historian, makes the case for New York City's being the strategic axis around which the Revolutionary War revolved. Schecter shows again and again how Great Britain's desire to hold New York City cost it the war effort, beginning with Gen. William Howe's slow invasion, in which he missed several opportunities to trap Washington in favor of securing the city, and ending with Gen. Henry Clinton's failure to reinforce Cornwallis because of his apprehensions about a possible attack on the city. The easy narrative style is enhanced by numerous quotes, allowing the actual players to tell their part of the story. This book is of special interest to those who live in and around New York, as it includes details about the fortifications of the two armies complete with references to current locations in the city and a walking tour. Well researched and written, this book is recommended for libraries in the New York area and those with comprehensive American Revolution collections." ; 9.13 X 6.57 X 1.11 inches; 448 pages; Signed by Author
