纳坦纳耶.格林出生,174277

1781年,格林与英国皇家军队知名将领--康华里--开战,他知道他得聪明点。格林是南方军队的总指挥,知道康华里的军力比美国强很多,当对方兵力明显优于我方,这个仗该怎么打?听过「分散攻击」吗?

纳坦纳耶.格林从不同的两个区域,分散攻击的方式,从两个方向同时攻向康华里的大军,拜计画奏效所赐,英军从南卡罗莱纳州的卡本,退到查尔斯敦。是年稍后,康华里就向格林的好朋友,乔治华盛顿投降了。



In 1781, Nathanael Greene fought the famous British General Lord Cornwallis. Greene knew he had to be clever. He was commander in chief of the southern army, but he knew that Cornwallis had far more soldiers than the Americans. How could he fight an army that was bigger than his own and expect to win? Ever hear the phrase "divide and conquer?"

General Greene forced Cornwallis's troops to split up and fight in two different areas at the same time. Thanks to Greene's plan, the British retreated from Cowpens, South Carolina, to the city of Charleston, South Carolina. Later that year, General Cornwallis surrendered to Greene's good friend, General Washington.
