Excellent book about the Revolutionary War from 1775-1776. The author packs in a ton of information about not only the main topic, but also related subjects like King George, the Hessians and the organization of German society, and the system of hiring officers in the British Army. All this is written in an entertaining style that never bogs down or becomes too overwhelming. I actually liked this better than David McCullough's 1776.

Rick Hautala I read that book several years ago and LOVEd it ... In fact, just finished his book on SARATGOA and loved it. He has a way of presenting a TON ofhistorical material and still being interesting ...


Eric Thanks for the comment, Rick. I'm about halfway through and would agree with you. Really enjoying it so far.
