Winning Independence tells the dramatic story of how and why Great Britain, so close to regaining several southern colonies and rendering the postwar United States a fatally weak nation, ultimately failed to win the war. The book explores the choices and decisions made by Sir Henry Clinton, Commander of Britain's army, Continental Army Commander in Chief, George Washington, and others, that ultimately led the French and American allies to clinch the pivotal victory at Yorktown that at long last secured American independence.
From celebrated historian John Ferling, the underexplored history of the second half of the Revolutionary War, when, after years of fighting, American independence often seemed beyond reach.
