George Washington at War, 1776
A mixture of fact with in-sites gained from an excellent horseman. The author has portrayed George Washington for several years both in reenactments in towns and cities and in several documentaries.
In Red Badge of Courage is a depiction of a soldier charging where he explains how time seems to expand. In a like manner of immediacy, when Washington is escaping from his pursuers, you can feel the saddle under you and hear the leather moving.
As a history buff myself, I found the visualizing of the varied scenes of battle clearer than if I had been there. The book “Diary of an early American Farm Boy” takes a real diary and expands on it. Hear facts from a pension appeal are laid out as the base and expanded in a like manner while also being original.
Recommended reading for history buffs and in particular those that have visited the sites depicted in the book.
