The First American Army, a review


Bruce Chadwick’s, The First American Army: The Untold Story of George Washington and the Men Behind America's First Fight for Freedom presents the visceral pain of ordinary Revolutionary War soldiers mixed with the drudgery and business of ordinary life, love, and orders through their diaries. It is captivating if you are really interested in the human spirit and context of this great American struggle.

A Book Review on, Nathaniel Philbrick’s, George Washington, Benedict Arnold, And the Fate of the American Revolution

Nathaniel Philbrick’s, George Washington, Benedict Arnold, And the Fate of the American Revolution, (973.382) presents an exhaustive account of Benedict Arnold as the Hannibal the American Revolution based upon his trek and portages up the Kennebec river and on to Quebec. This objective and revealing biography is very important in providing a bibliographic essay for the reader’s further excursions into this fascinating time in American history. This book is not for the faint of heart however, once involved, it is hard to put down. I highly recommend reading this book.
