The Key to American Independence: Quantifying Foreign Assistance to the American Revolution with LTG (R) Bill Wenger

This unusual history quantifies the critical aid provided by France and her allies Spain, the Netherlands, and to a lesser extent, other European nations to the Americans for the successful prosecution of their Revolutionary War. This study addresses the direct aid provided to the Americans and not the significant cost of the prosecution of the larger world war of which the American Revolution was only one theater of war against Great Britain by France and her allies. Presented in chronological order of the period after the Seven Years' War to and through the American Revolution this quantification of foreign aid provides a more comprehensive understanding of the magnitude and impact this assistance had on the success of the founding of the United States of America.
