This is volume two of a planned 3-part series about the Revolutionary War in central and upper New York State. While thix book sort of stands alone, it does build on volume 1, and I would recommend reading them in order.

---The Good Stuff---

* As with the first volume, the author is an excellent story-teller. He not only relates the "official" history, such as who commanded, who attacked, when, but also relates some of the personal opinions and motivations behind what was happening. The book is easy to read, and flows well.

* The Revolutionary war in this part of New York was every bit as violent and gruesome as the oft-mention Carolina campaigns. The actions of the British Army, with its attached Indian, German and Loyalist militias, is as far as you can get from the familiar image of gentlemen in red coats that we all can relate to. Logusz doesn't shy away from gory descriptions of what happened, but doesn't sensationalize them either. And the story really can't be told or appreciated without relating the ferocity and brutal nature of the struggle.

* The geography, topology, climate and environment of the area are a big part of the story, and Logusz does a credible job of describing those. If the battles had been played out on the flatter, dryer and less forested sites of other parts of the colonies, the outcome may well have been different.

* The nature of the Patriot settlers also is well developed in the book. The average farmer's wife in the Mohawk valley had no issues picking up a rifle and shooting down a loyalist militia man. Men who had been accustomed to hunting wild animals for food had no difficulty making the transition from hunter to sniper.

Anyone interested in volume II of 'With Musket and Tomahawk' has more than likely read the first work by Michael O. Logousz, (Saratoga Campaign) and so will be familiar with his writing style. Logusz does a very nice job of blending detailed research into a very engrosing story which allows readers to not just learn about a historical event, but to get excited about it as well. As readers of his first work well know, Logusz has a talent for bringing history to life, expecially when describing combat and the lives and dispositions of those "making" the history. Logusz gets into character development just enough for the reader to come away from the book with the ability to describe the individuals and settings to a friend, but not so much so that you feel as if you just attended (slept through) a ninety minute lecture in a four hundred level history class. The research, character development, and action is at just the right balance to makes for an excellent read regardless of any prior knowledge of Fort Stanwix, The Battle of Oriskany, or the principal players involved, and yet will satisfy those engrosed in the historical period (like myself) as well. I teach American and World History, and Michale O. Logusz has helped me to re-think how I approach the American Revolution. This war was far from being a united front against a colonial ruler, but rather was a vicious civil war fought for the very soul of every inhabitant in North America. Every American needs to understand this to truly appreciate just how contentious our very start as a nation was. The skill of Logousz is truly in being able to bring the subject matter to life, almost on the level of say a Francis Parkman.Read more ›

Really well done with detailed references and a walk thru of all major actions (and some minor) of the campaign up the Mohawk Valley in 1777 including the siege of Fort Stanwix and the frontier battle of Oriskany.

You'd have to put buckskins on, grab a flintlock and walk the grounds to get any closer. Extremely well done, with a nearly day by day - blow by blow - view of the actions as they unfolded, on some of the most savage fighting during the revolutionary war in America.

I sincerely hope this author goes on to finish the trilogy and detail Howe's capture of Philedelphia and the battle of Monmouth. Highly recommended; try also to get a copy of Volume I as it details the Saratoga campaign, a must have for any revolutionary war library and to provide the backdrop to the events of Volume II.

I read the first book written by this author and really like the way he brought the campaign to life. Michael Logusz continues the same style here with the second book. He brings a personal and emotional element to the book that makes it easy to read and enjoy. I wish that the footnotes were not at the end of each chapter in this book. Perhaps they could be all at the end as they were in the first book. It was still a good read and is a great jumping off point for more research and discovery of this war.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a part of American history that is unexplored. I have read a few books about the Saratoga campaign, but all just mentioned St leger's western campaign. I learned a lot reading this book.
