it was amazing
Read from December 06 to 09, 2010

What a feat of research and writing. Makes that period in our history come alive, and informs and entertains in the process. Completely changed my ill-informed--read boring school history books--understanding of that time and imparted an appreciation of the courage and sacrifice of the men, especially Washington, who were the authors of a successful revolution against the most powerful country, at that time, on earth. Should be highly recommended, if not required, reading for students taking American History courses.
I plan to read more of his work as I am painfully lacking in knowledge of the history of our country.
