I liked ths book. Excellent perspectives from both sides. Absolutely hit the nail on the head regarding importance of the event. Exciting battle descriptions. Strategy discussions are great. I liked the development of GW as a leader and the American development as a country.
It's nice to know that Washington was probably really standing in the boat -- the alternative would have been sitting in icy water in the bottom of the boat
A wonderful book that I enjoyed even though I normally stay away from military history. I especially enjoyed the early descriptions of how the three armies were commanded, organized, and recruited, explaining what kind of men, especially the British and Hessians, would sign-up to fight in the Americas. Another favorite section was the description of the New Jersey occupation before the famous crossing.
