Take triumphantly to the streets of New York who wrested the colonial city from the grasp of George Washington's army.
- THE CONQUERORS blends incisive scholarship and dramatic re-creations to bring iconic figures to life.
- Filled with visits to important sites and interviews with leading historians.
- Colonial accounts bring Howe's battle with Washington to life.
He was an experienced commander sent to impose order on a rebellious colony. He soundly defeated the man who would come to be called "the father of the country." Yet in the end, his victory proved fruitless.
THE CONQUERORS illuminates the career of the British General whose decisive victory in the Battle of Long Island let him claim to the greatest prize in the colonies—New York City. Military historians detail the stages of the crucial battle and reveal how Howe's victory extended the war. Yet even with control over the center of finance, the largest port in the colonies and the gateway to the American interior, the British could not secure victory in the war.
