  • Description

Storm Over Savannah: The Story of Count d'Estaing and the Siege of the Town in 1779 tells the story of France's attempt to take down Savannah, the center for Britain's military power in the colonies in 1779. This mission, led by Charles-Henri, Comte d'Estaing, was taken on by four thousand troops of King Louis XVI, in cooperation with Americans. This account of the little-known Siege of Savannah reveals a dramatic story worth telling.
