VICTORY AT YORKTOWN by Donald Barr Chidsey


Email this review


Dealing in detail with the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown, this highly readable book tells also of the last years of the War of the American Revolution, from the flight of Benedict Arnold to the signing of the final peace treaty. Writing with a sense of personal participation, the author tells of incidents neglected in many histories of the Revolution, brings Washington and other generals and politicians to life and gives a fascinating picture of the surrender. It is a compact volume which will have a general reader as well as reference market -- ideally suited for the young adult audience.
