“George Washington’s Military Genius”

Many military historians dismiss George Washington as merely lucky: he won the Revolutionary War by sheer dogged persistence against a half-hearted British enemy tat decided the prize wasn’t worth the cost.  

But this says Palmer, a combat veteran and former superintendent of West Point and expert military historian is simply wrong.  For the first time in history books, Palmer qualifies that the Revolutionary War actually developed in four distinct phases, each so different from the others that they could almost be described as four separate wars.  And it was Washington’s genius that recognized the changes and employed timely strategies to overcome the largest fighting force in the world at that time.
