Reading Book Guide

Benedict Arnold's Army, by Arthur Lefkowitz

We hope these thought-provoking questions lead to some lively book discussions.

  1. If Washington lost the majority of battles that he fought, why is he revered as a great military leader?
  2. General Richard Montgomery and then Colonel Benedict Arnold worked well together and admired one another. Also, Montgomery was a rising star in the Continental army when he was killed during the American attack on Quebec. Had Montgomery lived, would he have made a difference in Arnold's subsequent military career, especially his turning traitor in 1780?
  3. Besides the 1775 Arnold Expedition, what other examples were there of Washington's aggressiveness in the way he fought the war?
  4. Would Guy Carleton have affected the outcome of the war if he had been put in command of the British army in America in 1776?
  5. Who was the best American combat officer of the American Revolution and why?
  6. Who was the most effective British general officer in the American Revolution and why?
  7. Which lower ranking British officer should have been promoted to high command during the war and why?
  8. What opportunities did the British miss that would have affected the outcome of the conflict?
  9. How could the British have better used the Royal Navy to their advantage?
  10. Would the American conquest of Canada shortened the war in their favor?
  11. The British had the upper hand in terms of men, ships, and equipment, especially during the opening years of the American Revolution. What strategic changes should they have made in 1776-1777 to use their overwhelming resources to their better advantage?
