Editorial Reviews

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

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