This is a great book- it is clear why it won the Pulitzer Prize. It is an examination of the late 1776-1777 campaign during the American Revolution. I learned a ton of new things from this book. The beginning of it is an in depth examination of the Continental, British, and Hessian armies and their leaders. The portion on the Hessians was particularly fascinating. The book easily balances great detail with readability. Frankly, the best book I have read in a while.
