When I was a kid we spent an awful lot of time studying the American Revolution, but didn't focus at all on military strategy. For those kids eager to dig a little bit deeper into the military history of this era and Washington as a military leader, this book is a winner. As is normally the case with Jim Murphy's non-fiction the text is engaging and his storytelling makes the subject interesting. I also really appreciated the notes at the end regarding the famous painting of Washington Crossing the Delaware that was used on the cover of this book - that was a pleasant surprise.
