KIRKUS REVIEW

This fictional account of Private Jack Ransome's participation in the war of 1812 places him with Company F, Sixth Infantry, under General Winfield Scott. With heavy emphasis on strategy, tactics and authentic background, it is painstaking reading with an appeal for boys very much steeped in the subject. It is laboriously exact in its recital of the siege of Vera Cruz and the battle of Cerro Gordo which led up to the crisis which undermined Mexican dictator Santa Ana.
