This 440 page book opens with a summary of the incredibly complex, worldwide conflict of 1779, which had sprung from America’s four-year revolt, and explains the inability of the Crown’s commanders in New York City and Quebec to keep pace with their ever-expanding challenges.

General Washington seized this opportunity to punish the northern native nations, whose raiding had so dominated the previous campaign. His armies invaded their territories, razed their towns and destroyed their extensive crops and orchards. His primary goal was to force these British allies out of the war, although an apparent secondary goal was to prepare for the postwar expansion of the United States.

While Washington’s campaign was a technical success, the goal of destroying native morale failed. Three more years of intense raiding followed.

Gavin Watt’s readers comment on his previous works:
  • Rolland Miner reported, “Gavin Watt is one of the foremost writers and experts on the important contributions of the Loyalists who supported the Crown in the war.


  • Alan Fitzpatrick wrote, “Gavin Watt’s intimate and complete grasp of the American Revolution in the north… is unrivaled; and makes his book a thoroughly compelling read.


  • Carl Benn noted, “I am most impressed with the depth of his research and the quality of his analysis of a range of important themes…. As is typical of Mr. Watt’s several books on the revolution, this is a thoroughly researched effort, marked by a mature analysis that corrects many misconceptions and errors and that will remain the standard assessment for years to come"

  • After reading this manuscript, Christian Cameron commented, “I love the inclusion of these full primary source documents…. The things I’m learning here— fascinating…. This is an excellent history and I wish I’d had it years ago.
