Why stop at Valley Forge?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Road to Valley Forge: How Washington Built the Army that Won the Revolution (Hardcover)
This is a very good book; my main complaint is that there is not enough of it. Buchanan starts with the battle of Long Island, continues through Trenton to Brandywine and the Valley Forge winter. However, this still leaves Princeton and more battles in the Middle States. Why stop here?
Also, the maps are just plain bad. How can a reputable publisher (and author) do so poorly?
If you haven't read "The Road to Guilford Courthouse", do so immediately! It is a better book (but its maps were even worse!).
