英国history essay代写 本宁顿战役
Most historians agree that the British Army’s loss at the Battle of Bennington was a devastating setback to the Saratoga Campaign, but they disagree on whether it was a decisive turning point or merely another blow exacerbating the woes of a campaign doomed from the start by poor planning. On one hand, Bennington was both a strategic disaster and a psychological blow, but on the other, there were other failures and severe misjudgements that may have made it impossible for the British Army to succeed regardless of the outcome at Bennington. Strategically, the Battle of Bennington was a disaster for the British. In addition to failing to obtain the horses and ammunition necessary to their war effort, the British suffered over 1000 losses (deaths and captures), one ninth of Burgoyne’s nine-thousand regular fighting force. This was an even greater loss than the one at Freeman’s Farm on September 19th. The American forces were growing due to large numbers of militiamen flocking to the cause after the victories at Bennington and Freeman’s Farm, so such a loss would have severely limited the military capabilities of the army, especially relative to that of their opponents. The heavy losses, and the failure to obtain the aforementioned supplies, severely weakened the British army, putting them at a disadvantage relative to the Americans and making ultimate victory highly unlikely.
