Back during the revolutionary war,where british generals negitively affected by orders form the king of england taking months to reach them?

Since communications took so long you'd think that they would have agreed on strategic goals before coming over from Britain, and would have had standing orders to deal with most situations. Also, by that time in history, the army would have been getting their orders from the Prime Minister.

No. They were given their orders and carried them out until they got new ones. They did not send messages back asking what to do and then waiting for an answer.

Sure. Especially as the Brits were fighting in Europe then! A major battle happened in the USA after the war was technically over.

Oh yeah. But then again the King didn't issue strategic or tactical orders for that reason. In the war of 1812, the war actually ended before the Battle of New Orleans. But with slow communications they didn't know that.
