This lengthy book is a fascinatng look at how Washington responded to the crises that were manifested during the winter encampments of the Revolutionary War. Chadwick shares the details of the lack of supply, its effect on the Continental Army, and focuses on Washington's response. Not much written about the battles, not particularly biographical, however, this is a fascinating book.
