KIRKUS REVIEW

A lucid account of the events leading up to and contemporaneous with the confrontations, of the battles themselves, and of their aftermath, with Concluding remarks designed to ""encourage in the reader a healthy skepticism toward all written history and leave it to him to make his own choice."" Thus Mr. Cunco identifies his differences with other writers, especially over the value of Burgoyne's plan for the invasion and over the role of Benedict Arnold, the latter being developed in considerable detail. It's a welcome approach in contrast to the usual assertiveness.
