Reason read: war room challenge, US war of independence
This was the second book I read about the war of independence and the two books meshed well. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The reader did a good job and the story was engaging. This covers the build up of a Patriot troops that could actually win a battle.

This was a book that explored four main facets of American's War for Independence: 1) Washington Crossing the Delaware 2) Thomas Paine's contributions 3) Brutal conditions suffered by American Troops 4) Hessian involvement. If you are wanting blow by blow battle scenes, this book is not for you. There are few battles. The book focuses more on the conditions under which America's troops labored; and they were brutal, more so than I had realized. I was leery of reading this book because I had to read some of the author's position papers for a class I took, and I was not a fan! That being said, this book is top notch, IMHO. 345 pages… (lisätietoja)
