    On the plus side: I learned a lot about Valley Forge. And I found out that David Bushnell not only made the first submarine for warfare, he also invented water mines (ah, what a legacy...) But at times the read was a bit of a long slog, not unlike the winter encampment. ...

    Valley Forge. Now that?s a subject worthy of its own book. If nothing else, there?s George Washington. Washington attracts great writers you know. Ron Chernow was compelled to give us a life of Washington while David McCullough gave us 1776, so it?s no surprise to me that the be...

    This book was well researched and well written! I live close to Valley Forge Park and frequently walk around and enjoy the history of it. After reading this book, I feel like I know so much more about one of my favorite places to visit and the importance it has in history. ...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and it was an advance reader's edition paperback. For some reason, I love reading about the Revolutionary War and am amazed at the new things I learn with every gook. What doesn't change is my amazement that we actually won our independence......

    An engaging history on the six months Washington spent at Valley Forge, and how he kept the Continental army - and, in turn, the hope of a fledgling country -together, despite the elements, the lack of supplies, a deserting citizen army, an unhelpful Congress, and a petty, backstabbing...

    The topic is certainly interesting. If the author had not tried so hard to show off his vocabulary and his Thesaurus using skills it would have been a much better read. As a result, it was difficult to read. I appreciate his insight into strategy and what Washington might have been thi...
