really liked it
Read in August, 2009

Good overview of the campaign. The parts about the British and Loyalists were very good and shed lots of light on a part of the war too often marginalized. However, the writing is bit dry, which surprises me considering McCullough's popularity. Also the book was scatter shot at times and McCullough's conclusions were often poorly developed. Still, it is a good book but not a classic by any means.
