    Thomas Crocker has written an important book. Braddock’s March is the story of how the defeat of a powerful army sowed the seeds of the American Revolution. It recounts the logistical nightmare of mounting a campaign across an ocean and deep into a dense and nearly impenetrable frontier. After the death of Braddock, Washington helped save the British and provincial troops from total destruction. The following excerpt from Braddock’s Defeat: The Battle of the Monongahela and the Road to Revolution by David Preston summarizes the challenges of this pivotal battle and its impact on the Revolutionary War two decades later.
