difficult to put it down. I can't wait for the sequel. This is History coming alive!
The research and painstaking attention to detail involved in this undertaking is mind-blowing. The author has also created professional maps of the battlegrounds and campaigns, drawing on his expertise and experience as a cartographer. 'The War has Begun' is a total immersion experience. The language is kid-friendly and I recommend that this novel be added to elementary, high school, college, and university curricula across the United States.
The main character, Isaac Fry was a real person. This is his story, as it was many thousands of other Revolutionary War soldiers, state militia, and sailors. This story only includes the first three years of the war, with follow up books to take us to the end of the War. The author includes some 30 pages of historical sources listed at the end of the book used to create his fictional story, but with real people and real events. So while you are reading a fictional account, the author blends the two together putting you in the time and place. This is not a book with battle after battle, because that was not the early actions of the war, but as the title says, “The War has Begun”. We do see the tactics of small units, a number of battles, the fear, the death, the General Orders, movement to an area of operation, and the drudgery of “hurry up and wait”, something everyone who has ever severed in the military knows too well about. This is a good read, because I can see it in my mind, just like it was a movie, and those are the best kind of books to read.
