So when I found out that Dr. Jeremy Black, author of one of my favorite books on military history, has a great new lecture, entitled "Could the British have won the American War of Independence", I jumped with glee. Too bad I won't be able to attend the lecture, which takes place next week. Sorry, but I have Volksfest in Stuttgart to attend.
Nevertheless, I wonder whether the British would have won the war, given their commitment to contain Bourbon France and Spain. At any rate, I have to postpone that topic. I just received Robert Woodward's latest book, "Obama's Wars", on my Kindle. I have to read this. The American Revolution, unfortunately, is old news.
