    GMT is pleased to offer the latest in Mark Miklos' popular and critically acclaimed American Revolutionary War series: Volume VII, Germantown, 1777.

    Following their victory at Brandywine on September 11, 1777, British forces under Major General William Howe captured the colonial capital of Philadelphia. Unable to prevent this, General George Washington moved the 11,000-man Continental Army to a position approximately 30 miles northwest of the city. Howe was concerned about the proximity of the Americans. In response he left a garrison of 3,000 men in the city but moved with 9,000 men to Germantown, five miles from Philadelphia, in a position to block an American approach.

    Alerted to Howe's movement, Washington saw an opportunity to strike a blow against the British while he had numerical superiority. He developed a complicated attack plan which called for four converging columns to hit the British simultaneously before dawn. If the assault proceeded as planned the Americans would achieve a double envelopment that could prove decisive.
