Description
 
This military biography of General Thaddeus Kosciuszko concentrates on his remarkable engineering achievements in the American Revolution during the years, 1776 - 1783. At Fort Ticonderoga, Kosciuszko sought to fortify the nearby and dominating height of Mount Defiance, but General Philip Schulyer failed to heed his advice and lost the bastion to the British. At Saratoga, Kosciuszko's strong position on Bemis Heights blocked the British march on Albany. Thus he destroyed their Grand Strategy for the conquest of the colonies.

At West Point, Kosciuszko carried out General George Washington's strategy on controlling the Hudson River. The brilliant engineer built a fortress the British dared not attack. In the South, Kosciuszko gave General Nathanael Greene's army an amphibious capability to cross rivers and march rapidly around the British and gain victory.

Returning to Poland, Kosciuszko defended his country against rapacious neighbors. He returned to his adopted country in 1797, but Vice President Thomas Jefferson sent him on a secret mission to France, where Kosciuszko persuaded the French government to change its war-threatening behavior toward America. Includes some black and white illustrations and maps.
