Germantown: A Military History Of The Battle For Philadelphia, October 4, 1777
- American History, American Revolution
A bloody day in Germantown
Today, Germantown is a busy neighborhood in Philadelphia. On October 4, 1777, it was a small village on the outskirts of the colonial capital whose surrounding fields and streets witnessed one of the largest battles of the American Revolution. The bloody battle represented George Washington’s attempt to recapture Philadelphia, but has long been overshadowed by better-known events like Brandywine, Saratoga, and Valley Forge.
Award-winning author Michael C. Harris’s impressive Germantown is the first complete study to merge the strategic, political, and tactical history of this complex operation and important set-piece battle into a single compelling account. Includes original maps, numerous illustrations, and modern photos.
