Part of the acclaimed Casemate Illustrated Series, this book looks in detail at the northern strategy of 1776, covering the battles of Princeton, Saratoga, Philadelphia among others.

Despite declaring their independence on 4 July 1776, Britain’s former colonies in North America would need to fight for their liberty. The response from the other side of the Atlantic was slow, but when it arrived it appeared overwhelming. Hundreds of ships and tens of thousands of troops gathered to re-establish the Crown’s control. If the Revolution was not to die in its first year, the Americans would need to take on the largest expeditionary force ever sent by Great Britain up to that point… with an army of amateurs.

This Casemate Illustrated volume discusses the northern strategy in 1776—the year in which Britain’s war effort became hopelessly disjointed, with two armies operating on entirely different agendas. It covers the battles of Princeton, Saratoga, Philadelphia and others.
