George Washingtons military strategy has been called bumbling at worst and brilliant at best. So which is it? Was George Washington a strategic genius or just lucky? So asks Dave R. Palmer inGeorge Washingtons Military Genius. An updated edition of Palmers earlier workThe Way of the Fox,George Washingtons Military Geniusbreaks down the American Revolution into four phases and analyzes Washingtons strategy during each. The British did not have to lose; the patriots did not have to triumph, writes Palmer as he proves without a doubt that Washingtons continuously changing military tactics were deliberate, strategic responses to the various phases of the war and not the result of his lacking a plan of action. Confronting the critics who say Washingtons battlefield success and ultimate victories were a function of luck,George Washingtons Military Geniusproves why Washington deserves the title of Americas preeminent strategist.
