Summary:
"Great Britain contracted for regiments of German soldiers to assist in putting down the rebellion. Various professionally-trained officers with these contingents regularly sent reports to their overlords in Germany, and these often included carefully-drawn maps depicting battles and encampments of the German troops. These maps have remained relatively unknown.... [They] have now been reproduced, with their texts in English, and they form the basis for new interpretations of the War for Independence."--Back cover
