This useful and handy reference book provides a concise account of the siege and battle of Yorktown in Virginia, one of the decisive battles of the American War of Independence that marked the twilight of British colonial rule.

Covering not only Yorktown but the action at Gloucester Point, it explores the background to the campaign, chronicles the progression of the siege and includes information about the surrender ceremony.

Together with an extremely useful Order of Battle, there are maps, line drawings and colour plates illustrating the uniforms and weapons of the British, American, and French troops.
