Does what it intends,
This review is from: The Philadelphia Campaign: June 1777- July 1778 (Great Campaigns) (Paperback)
This is not the greatest work of history one will read. It isnt meant to be. Its a simple non pretentious description of the philadelphia campaign meant for widespread digestion. The battles listed are notoriously confusing and Martin does a nice job of presenting them in a cogent reasonable fashion. Most helpful is the appendix describing the modern conditons of the battlefields. I found his chapter on Brandywine to be the most visual and informative description of that battle Ive read.
