George Washington and George Germaine

Thought of Rick Atkinson’s comparison of Germaine during the Revolution to Robert McNamara during Vietnam at a recent lecture as I read his extended Op-Ed on Washington then and now. To an Army audience, the comparison drew knowing, but subdued laughter. An excellent companion book to Atkinson’s “The British Are Coming” is Andrew Jackson O’Shaughnessy’s 2014 work, “The Men Who Lost America.”
