KIRKUS REVIEW

The second biography of Nathanael Greene this fall, both over-titled but carrying a good load of information. Retreat to Victory (819, J-299) used flashbacks and fictional dialogue; journalist Ralph Edgar Bailey sticks to the facts and some historical quotes, achieving less immediacy, greater precision. Intermittent description and competent prose delineate the career of the heretofore ignored second-in-command of the Revolutionary War--a well-ordered, unemotional account, clearly preferable to the earlier entry.
