Casemate #ad - History plays tricks sometimes. In the shadows of victory takes a look at an array of American battlefield commanders who were as responsible for triumph as their more famous peers, yet have often gone unsung. For example, few of the thousands who pass by the traffic square between Fifth Avenue and Broadway in Manhattan each day realize that it houses a tomb.

As such it provides a fascinating tour through early American military history and the various martial challenges the young nation faced during its first century of existence. In the shadows of victory describes the heroics and command acumen of 25 superb military leaders whose sacrifice and skill have often been neglected.

From the war of independence, and during the numerous indian wars throughout, great combat leaders have emerged across America’s battlefields, through the Mexican War and Civil War, yet have just as suddenly slipped through the cracks of history once the guns went silent.

In the Shadows of Victory: America's Forgotten Military Leaders, 1776-1876 #ad - Fewer still understand that beneath the obelisk rests one of America’s best military commanders—William Worth—a hero in not one but two of the nation’s wars. During the course of america’s experience it has enshrined an exceptional few military leaders in our collective consciousness as “great, ” while ignoring others often equally as deserving.

At the same time conflicts themselves have often disappeared from consciousness, the British in 1812, the public forgetting the fights the country waged against the Barbary Pirates, and against the Seminoles and Apaches.
