Some historians have attempted to fill in the gaps of this description, Fischer
portraying Howe as a melancholy figure attempting to blot out the horrors of war
through over-indulgence in drinking, eating, gambling and womanizing. Although
this is not an unreasonable supposition (and the assessment of Charles Lee
bears some similarity to Fischer's), there is little evidence to back it up.5 Howe's

war out of ...

public eye, which is too apt to be directed to scenes of glory, and all the pomp
and circumstance of war. Let him paint the varied miseries and wretchedness
