Andrew O’Shaughnessy talked about his book, The Men Who Lost America: British Leadership, the American Revolution, and the Fate of the Empire, in which he profiles the leaders of the British Army and examines their tactical decisions during the Revolutionary War. He said that contrary to popular thinking, the British leadership did not lose the War due to incompetence, but rather from a combination of an ardent Continental Army and political issues in Britain. Andrew O’Shaughnessy spoke at the Kansas City Library in Kansas City, Missouri. close
