The Revolutionary War Memoirs of Major General William Heath Illustrated Edition, Kindle Edition
First published in 1798, this Revolutionary War memoir is one of the few ever written by a senior Continental Army commander. It provides a unique glimpse into the administrative operations and inner workings of the army during the American Revolution. Major General William Heath offers rare insights on the war's major military personalities on both the American and British sides. Of particular interest are his wartime interactions with British generals John Burgoyne and William Phillips, as well as Continental Army generals such as George Washington and Charles Lee. Heath's memoir also gives readers a detailed look at the constant struggles faced by the army, including food, supply, personnel and funding shortages, and presents an almost daily chronicle of the tribulations and successes experienced by patriot forces during the war.

Reviewed in the United States on January 17, 2015
Among students of the Revolutionary War and the founding of our nation, primary sources provide essential insights into the thoughts and motivations of those who helped found the United States. The secondary players' accounts are often as valuable as those of the most famous, for they offer new perspectives on America's now-mythic figures. Such is the case with the memoirs of Maj. Gen. William Heath, a senior Continental Army commander who served under George Washington. Written in Heath's twilight years, he chronicled the war years in detail through the filter of daily army life and high-level operations. Thankfully, since Heath was not a skilled writer, Dr. Sean Heuvel of Christopher Newport University has used his own knowledge of the Revolution to edit Heath's memoir and create an informed context for modern readers. A valuable read for military and public historians especially, as well as for Rev War fans.
