Brown Bag: Dr. Huw Davies, “New Insights on Henry Clinton and British Strategy in the American Revolutionary War”
November 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In this Brown Bag lunch talk, Dr. Huw Davies will discuss his current research at the Clements Library as recipient of the Howard H. Peckham Fellowship. His research focuses on re-evaluating the history of the British Army in Colonial and Revolutionary America, India, and Europe, 1750-1850. In the space of seven decades between 1740 and 1810, the British Army fought wars on four continents, producing a unique accumulation of knowledge, experience and ideas about tactics, operations and strategy. Henry Clinton was at the centre of this knowledge network, and had vociferous opinions about how Britain should use its military power. Davies will present a paper, using research conducted at the Clements Library, to illustrate Clinton’s thinking on war, and how he influenced the direction of the British Army. Attendees are welcome to bring a lunch and eat during the presentation.
