KIRKUS REVIEW

The earliest marines in the American colonies were the Marbleheaders who made history when they evacuated the defeated forces under Washington after the battle of Long Island; ter they did man's service at Polhem: and still later were responsible for getting the forces across the Delaware for the victory which made the turning point of the war. Their story is told through the adventures of a Concord farmer's son and a Nttan Dutch rebel who joined the Marblehead ""Fourteenth"", History, adventure and romance -- and a first rate story.
