Terrific synopsis of a great leader.

Dave R. Palmer originally named this book The Way Of The Fox. Both titles are a bit misleading. Palmer mostly discussed Washington the strategic thinker, not the army commander. This is not to dismiss the value of his thesis. It was Washington's strategy, carried out most notably by his protege Nathaniel Greene in the Carolinas, that won America its independence. His vision, shared by the other founding fathers, of the United States as a future great power led to favorable peace terms. What is not here are the day to day details of Washington's leadership of the Continental army and of his campaigns. For that look for a narrative history of the Revolution or a good Washington biography. I recommend George Washington, A Life by Willard Sterne Randall. It might be best to have a working knowledge of the Revolution before reading this book,
