Stephen Brumwell’s new book focuses on George Washington, the feisty young frontier officer and the tough forty-something commander of the revolutionaries’ Continental Army. It examines his long and chequered military career, tracing his evolution as a soldier, and his changing attitude to the waging of war.
Dr. Stephen Brumwell is an award-winning independent historian and journalist. He attended the University of Leeds, gaining a PhD in history and British Academy funding to research eighteenth-century North America. Brumwell's widely acclaimed books include Redcoats: The British Soldier and War in the Americas, 1755–1763; White Devil: A True Story of War, Savagery and Vengeance in Colonial America; and Paths of Glory: The Life and Death of General James Wolfe.
