During the Revolutionary War both the British and Americans spent a great deal of effort in an attempt to resolve the conflict in their favor From any historians view the question of exactly how the outnumbered and outclassed American forces won the war easily arises Analysis of the conflict leads to the conclusion that the Americans took advantage of British ignorance arrogance and inflexibility to outwit their foe on and off the battlefield This theory leads me to agree with the argument that British did more to loose the war than the Americans did to win The first blows the British struck against themselves came before what is traditionally considered to be the Revolutionary War The British made many faulty decisions that made them a common enemy to all of the colonists such as firing at the Boston Massacre and refusing to repeal all of the duties they had imposed upon the colonists Lord Dunmores proclamation was particularly countereffective to the British cause because it gave any slave the right to freedom if they decided to fight for the British it quickly turned wealthy plantation owners who used slave labor in farms against them In the loyalist rich south the additional anti-British sentiment brought by these disgruntled plantation owners helped to unify the colonies and although loyalists still remained after these events each of the 13 colonies endorsed the Declaration of Independence without which the Americans would have had no hope of being recognized as a nation by potential allies Honor and tradition while far from being bad on their own were also detrimental to the British war effort The British were undisputedly experts at linear warfare and refused to adapt and respond to dishonorable American tactics such as guerilla warfare not realizing that the Americans were not about to bend their strategy to help the British do what they were good at The Britishs reverence of honor above all else lead to single decisions
