KIRKUS REVIEW

A direct, factual approach to the American Revolution and the General who led its forces, this book approaches its subject from a military point of view. Excerpts from contemporary sources and an unflinching tenacity to get at the facts keep this text from being a more repetition of the numerous other books on the subject and, although a period of thirteen years is covered, Lynn Montross does not skimp on essential facts. Great losses and great gains, mistakes, treason, and overwhelming courage all form the pattern which Lynn Montross' well researched study brings to light in a helpful supplement to the study of American history.
