Part II of this trilogy tells the story of the Mohawk Valley Campaign of the Wilderness War of 1777. This campaign was part of British General John Burgoyne's strategy to cut off New England from the rest of the colonies. A force under Barry St. Leger was to come down the Mohawk Valley and link up with Burgoyne near Albany. However, he never made it that far, and instead, had to dedicate his forces to a siege of Fort Stanwix in Rome, NY.

The British campaign to attack thru the Mohawk valley to Albany NY and join up with Gen Burgoyne was a part of the revolutionary war lightly covered in school. I was very happy to read about the trials and set backs of the patriots. The battles of the wilderness in 1777 now are much more real. These 2 books by the author have given this period and the wilderness battles a reality I never experienced in school.

Good

Very well researched and written like a novel. Gives a good accounting of a part of the revolutionary that is not as well known as the battles in New England, and the South.

I have not read "With Musket and Tomahawk: The Saratoga Campaign and the Wilderness War of 1777" by Michael O. Logusz. I am proof you don't have to read volume I to enjoy volume II. I'll confess I have a good background in the history of the American Revolutionary War. I have a BA in history. I took every undergraduate course offered on the American Revolution at my university. I also studied it when taking United States military history. The author does a good job of telling the story. The book ...more

Wilderness Brought to Life

This second volume brings to life just how savage and brutal the American Revolution was. The savage butchery of the British with their German and Indian allies. The skill and bravery of the Patriots who defended their homes and villages. Savage hand-to-hand combat with tomahawk, knives, and bayonets. The author does a brilliant job placing the reader right in the middle of it all. Superbly written. Worthy of 5 Stars without a doubt.

Unlike the earlier volume, I didn't notice any glaring historical inaccuracies. Because he personalized the narrative it seemed more accessible, though still with the attention to military detail.

Unfortunately, I still did not care for the narrator, who consistently mispronounced Schoharie.
