Yet he remains virtually unknown to modern Americans. This superb, gracefully written account restores Lord Loudoun to public view in time for the 250th anniversary commemorations of the war, doing full justice to the memory of an important figure, too long forgotten. -Fred Anderson, University of Colorado, Boulder, Associate Professor and winner of the Parkman Prize for Crucible of War. Douglas W Foards new biography of Loudoun makes the case for the significance of this important military figure with elegance, conviction, and a subtle appreciation for the nuances of the mans strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures. -Warren R. Hofstra, Shenandoah University, Stewart Bell Professor of American History.
