Description: " Washington said if he went down in battle, Greene was his choice to succeed him. Read this book and you will understand why." -- Joseph J. Ellis, author of "His Excellency: George Washington""" He was an unlikely warrior-- a Quaker with a pronounced limp, Nathanael Greene surprised fellow patriots by rising quickly to become George Washington' s favorite soldier and heir apparent. After taking command of the failed Southern Army, Greene formulated an unorthodox guerrilla strategy-- to win by surprise attacks and hasty retreats, which cut the enemy' s supply lines until the outwitted British leaders grew tired of hunger and bloody sacrifices. His strategy of turning defeat into victory allowed the rebel army to gain momentum toward a final push, setting the stage for the victory at Yorktown. Terry Golway' s bold book, drawn from field documents, letters, diaries, and other sources, takes full account of the scope of Nathanael Greene' s remarkable accomplishments, returning the forgotten patriot to his proper place in American history. " Golway' s biography does justice to this remarkable man. It is both informative and entertaining, written in a lively style that reflects the best characteristics of history for the educated layman. Golway clearly admires his subject, but doesn' t overlook Greene' s flaws." -- "New York Post""" " Golway rescues Greene from oblivion, and deservedly so . . . A fitting and welcome monument to a surprisingly complex actor in early American history." -- "Kirkus Reviews"
