Editorial Reviews

"[T]he collection contains an admirable mixture of sturdy, predictable, but necessary chapters intermixed with refreshingly original chapters on less-studied aspects of Washington's career. ...It promises to be, as other volumes in the Blackwell Companions to American History series aspire to be, the standard one-volume reference on its subject."  (Journal of American History, 1 September 2013

"Scholars of the American Revolution should encourage their libraries to consider adding this title to their collections and should certainly consult it when needed."  (Journal of Military History, 1 May 2013)
