Nathanael Greene : a biography of the American Revolution by Gerald M Carbone( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Revolutionary War began, Nathanael Greene was a private in the militia, the lowest rank possible, yet he emerged from the war with a reputation as George Washington's most gifted and dependable officer--celebrated as one of three most important generals. Upon taking command of America's Southern Army in 1780, Nathanael Greene was handed troops that consisted of 1,500 starving, nearly naked men. Gerald Carbone explains how within a year, the small worn-out army ran the British troops out of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina and into the final trap at Yorktown. Despite his huge military successes and tactical genius Greene's story has a dark side. Using twenty-five years of original research, Gerald Carbone chronicles Greene's unlikely rise to success and his fall into debt and anonymity.--From publisher description
Washington : lessons in leadership by Gerald M Carbone( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before he became "the Father of our Country," George Washington was the Father of the American Army. He took an army that had no experience, no tradition, and no training, and fought a protracted war against the best, most disciplined force in the world -- the British Army. Deftly handling the political realm, Washington convinced Congress to keep his army supplied -- a difficult task when the country was really just a loose confederation of states with no power to tax. Washington influenced every phase of the Revolutionary War, from beginning to end. He left his mark with strategies and a vision of the Revolution as a war of attrition. His offenses were as brilliant as they were unpredictable, such as his legendary Christmas Day strike at Trenton, and a bold foray through the fog to nearly drive the British from the field at Germantown. It was an aggressive attack that helped convince the French that the American Army was worth supporting. In this book, the author argues that it is this sort of fearless but not reckless, spontaneous but calculated, offensive that Washington should be remembered for -- as a leader not of infallibility but of greatness
