Abstract:

"The years 1776-1780 were the pivotal period during the Revolutionary War."--BOOK JACKET. "At the center of practically every important military event during those four long years was a young cavalry officer, Henry Lee, the father of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Henry Lee's exploits on and off the battlefield played a key role in not only contributing to American victories but also lifting the flagging spirits of his fellow countrymen, when it often appeared as though the war was almost lost. By 1780 Henry Lee had emerged a legend, a combat-hardened veteran of unparalleled daring and bravery."--BOOK JACKET.

"Based extensively on primary sources, many of them unpublished, The American Partisan documents his remarkable military career. It details not only Lee's exploits but examines the central role he played in both gathering intelligence and foraging for the Continental army. The book also delves into the unique personal relationship between Henry Lee and General George Washington, a relationship that was more akin to father and son rather than commander and soldier."--BOOK JACKET.
