Victory and defeat for Benedict Arnold"


From the always interesting Journal of the American Revolution. You owe it to yourself to get on their mailing list.

I find that the skirmishes and maneuvering before the major battles of the AWI are often more fascinating than the resultant "major battle". Said major battle would be scarcely a footnote in a European war.

Thanks, John, for the link. I just signed up. Looking for to skirmish ideas.

I subscribe to JAR too, and thought the article was exceptional. Thanks for posting within this community.

The joy of the AWI is that it was designed entirely for wargaming.

Yes, that was a primary aim of the Founding Fathers. grin

Interesting – and I agree, thoughtful of the combatants!

Yeah, that's why I posted it.
I may have gotten in trouble for posting potential gaming fodder here, instead of politics and other rubbish, but what the heck.
