Product Overview

The Southern Strategy shifts the traditional vantage point of the American Revolution from the northern colonies to the South in this study of the critical period from 1775 to the spring of 1780. Wilson suggests that the paradox of the British defeat in 1781after Crown armies had crushed all organized resistance in South Carolina and Georgiamakes sense only if one understands the fundamental flaws in what modern historians label Britains Southern Strategy. In his assessment he closely examines battles and skirmishes to construct a comprehensive military history of the Revolution in the South through May 1780. Appraising the strategy and tactics of the most significant conflicts, he tests the thesis that the British could raise the manpower needed to win in the South by tapping a vast reservoir of Southern Loyalists and finds their policy flawed in both conception and execution.
