Edward G. Lengel’s The Battles of Springfield and Connecticut Farms, 1780 is also available now. This is the inaugural volume of the Small Battles Series, edited by Mark Edward Lender and James Kirby Martin. The book is a jacketed hardback, with 144 pages, 20 illustrations and maps, and retails for $26.00.

Historian and JAR contributor Todd W. Braisted read the book in advance: “Edward G. Lengel brings to life the June 1780 engagements that marked the British Army’s last major pitched battles in the North. Lengel captures the essence of a critical period of the war and how it played out in a series of brief but sharp encounters in central New Jersey. While drawing on established historiography of the battles, the author incorporates lesser used accounts, particularly those of the Hessians and General Knyphausen himself. Complemented by a series of contemporary and modern maps, the engagements of Connecticut Farms and Springfield are made easy to follow in a book that should make an excellent addition to any Revolutionary library.”
