Recommendation is the drill master of valley forge. The baron bunch toibin and the making of the american army by paul la carte. This biography gives some background on his early years but focuses on the generals years in the continental army at about three hundred pages not counting notes and index. It gets into pretty good detail about the man and his contribution to the american cause the author. Paul lockhart published the book in two thousand eight. Professor la carte teaches history at wright state university in ohio and has written a number of other books on warfare in sixteenth and seventeenth century europe as well as a book on bunker hill. So if you want to read more about punch toibin you may wanna get the drill master of valley forge for my online recommendation. I'm going to recommend von storylines army manual. It's called regulations for the order and discipline of the troops of the united states. A store continued to make changes to this manual.
