A vivid and engaging biography of the remarkable Revolutionary Era military figure who scored a crucial victory at Fallen Timbers despite profound personal troubles
“Well-written, with a keen eye for depicting the human side of history. Unlikely General draws the reader into exploring the passions, compulsions, and cultural perceptions of an important and justly-celebrated figure in the founding of the American republic.”—Richard Johnson, University of Washington

"Mary Stockwell has written what portends to be the definitive account of the life and times of Brigadier General "Mad Anthony" Wayne. One of George Washington's most able subordinates, Anthony Wayne's military performance during and after the Revolution is a story that needs to be more widely known. Wayne was indeed an "unlikely general" but one who played a central role in the early military affairs of the United States."— Charles P. Neimeyer, Marine Corps University

“Stockwell has given us an Anthony Wayne unlike any other—a brave and sometimes brilliant soldier, but also a complex, flawed, and emotionally vulnerable man. . . .an important and engaging biography.”—Mark Edward Lender, co-author of A Respectable Army: The Military Origins of the Republic, 1763-1789
