Nathaniel Philbrick, In the Hurricane's EyeAcclaimed historian Nathaniel Philbrick shares the thrilling story of the year that won the Revolutionary War. In the fall of 1780, after five frustrating years of war, George Washington had come to realize that the only way to defeat the British Empire was with the help of the French navy. Recognized today as one of the most important naval engagements in the history of the world, the Battle of the Chesapeake—fought without a single American ship—made the subsequent victory of the Americans at Yorktown a virtual inevitability. In a narrative that moves from Washington's headquarters on the Hudson River to Lafayette's brilliant series of maneuvers across Tidewater Virginia, Philbrick details a riveting story, full of dramatic, unexpected turns.
