Editorial Reviews

The Journal of Modern History, Vol. 40, No. 1 (Mar., 1968), pp. 136-137 - Piers Mackesy
This contribution to the history of the Revolution and the British army, which could easily have been undertaken in a spirit of amused superiority, has happily been written by an author who combines an American viewpoint with an understanding of the British army, and knowledge of the local circumstances with a general awareness of civil-military problems. John Shy has written an important book: clear and often forceful in style, detailed yet with general insight, and thoroughly researched.
The Journal of American History, Vol. 53, No. 1 (Jun., 1966), pp. 110-111 - Don Higginbotham
This superb volume joins a growing shelf of serious, detailed reexaminations of the period from 1763 to 1776. Properly speaking, Shy's book belongs to the imperial school of historiography. That approach to the American Revolution, stressing British policy from the standpoint of London, is still very much with us, not only in the work of Lawrence H. Gipson, but also in that of several younger scholars
