More of an extended blog than a history book

This Charles Rivers book, the first that I’ve read, is really more of a lengthy series of blog posts than a history book. It is a good quick read to rapidly digest the broad strokes of the Culper Ring.

More of Sam's books…
“War means fighting. The business of the soldier is to fight. Armies are not called out to dig trenches, to throw up breastworks, to live in camps, but to find the enemy and strike him; to invade his country, and do him all possible damage in the shortest possible time. This will involve great destruction of life and property while it lasts; but such a war will of necessity be of brief continuance, and so would be an economy of life and property in the end.”
Stonewall Jackson
