Nathaniel Philbrick is one of my favorite historians and this book was another solid effort by the author. This story looks at the path to Yorktown and the end of the Revolutionary War. I have not read a great deal about this specific event, but from what I do know, there does not seem to be much that is new here. Philbrick is always good at telling a story, but I did not enjoy this quite as much as many of his earlier works as I didn't think there was all that much exciting to tell in this case. If you enjoy the Revolution and good writing than I would recommend this book for you.
