The American Revolution "Papas has written a marvelous book about the bristling, impetuous eccentric that was General Charles Lee, whose pageant of a life included soldiering against Iroquois Indians, Spanish expansionists, Ottoman Turks, and Polish insurgents — all this before he made himself a historical figure in the American Revolution. Papas argues that Lee's contributions to the winning of American independence, both as a propagandist and as a soldier, deserve recognition. Charles Lee, Papas writes, was a manic-depressive who was more comfortable around dogs than people, but he was also an early advocate of US independence, human rights and education for women.
