@FREE PDF í WITH MUSKET AND TOMAHAWK: The Turning Point of the Revolution, Saratoga 1777 ì eBook or E-pub free

Battle to remember A great story well told The movements and actions are very well illustrated Brave patriots created a successful plan and executed their plan under very adverse conditions It is interesting to note the adverse effects of politics. Interesting book, lot of detail, but the writing style and errors made it at times painful to read.e.g Most who fought in the terrible Wilderness War of 1777 had little to no notion of what the American Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, or the Constitution stood for not surprising I guess, since the Constitution was drafted on September 17, 1787, and the Bill of Rights was created on September 25, 1789. @FREE PDF Ø WITH MUSKET AND TOMAHAWK: The Turning Point of the Revolution, Saratoga 1777 Ý A comprehensive look at the brutal wilderness war that secured America s independenceWith Musket and Tomahawk is a vivid account of the American and British struggles in the sprawling wilderness region of the northeast during the Revolutionary War Combining strategic, tactical, and personal detail, this book describes how the patriots of the recently organized Northern Army defeated England s massive onslaught of 1777, thereby all but ensuring America s independence.Conceived and launched by top ranking British military leaders to shatter and suppress the revolting colonies, Britain s three pronged thrust was meant to separate New England from the rest of the nascent nation along the line of the Hudson River Thus divided, both the northern and southern colonies could have been defeated in detail, unable to provide mutual assistance against further attacks.Yet, despite intense planning and vast efforts, Britain s campaign resulted in disaster when General John Burgoyne, with 6,000 soldiers, emerged from a woodline and surrendered his army to the Patriots at Saratoga in October 1777.Underneath the umbrella of Saratoga, countless battles and skirmishes were waged from the borders of Canada southward to Ticonderoga, Bennington, and West Point Heroes on both sides were created by the score, though only one side proved victorious, amid a tapestry of madness, cruelty, and hardship in what can rightfully be called the terrible

very different story.Military Modeling DETAILED HISTORY OF WAR IN THE NORTH IN 1777.The author presents a well researched and even handed account of the pivotal campaign by General Burgoyne against the nascent US Army and militias in 1777, culminating in his defeat in the environs of Saratoga, New York Detailed accounts of troop strengths and movements allow the reader to understand how such an unlikely outcome came about Generous vignettes of those involved, taken from journals and other contemporary sources, give depth to the participants whose names we may have learned in history classes, but whose personality has been omitted. The prose is somewhat pedestrian, and occasionally one is overwhelmed with too much detail, but the narrative overall is engaging This seldom told story is worth knowing, whether for American or English or military history. This book reads like your old man telling you about a bar room brawl Michael demonstrates the history of the Champlain valley with esprit de corp He shined a lot of light into the hills and valleys I hunted growing up Dennis Johnson dose a wonderful job on the narration Worth the money on audible I ve listened a few times. Narrative of how the Battle of Saratoga began and ended Well written narrative examination of the actions culminating in the surrender of the British at Saratoga Definitely worth the read. Unique look at the battle of the wilderness A unique look at the battle of the wilderness, on on the individual stories of than on tactics and leaders In my opinion a nice look at history from a slightly different perspective. Three stars is a little bit of a stretch The quality of the writing is not polished and much of it is too melodramatic in style for a serious work of history.Never the less, this book relates a very detailed and interesting history of the British expedition from Canada south to capture Albany The grand strategy here was to meet up with British forces coming north from New York City This action would then cut off the Americans in New England from Washington s army in the south, and thereby end the revolution Two big things went very wrong First, the British had no conception of how hard it was going to be to move an army south from Canada through the northern wilderness.Second, the British forces in New York City failed to come and attack from the south.The result was the defeat and capture of the British forces at Saratoga NY and a huge psychological victory for the Americans. This book walked through the 1777 Saratoga Campaign in which British General John Burgoyne made his way south from Canada down Lake Champlain to Fort Ticonderoga and finally to Saratoga, where he surrendered to American forces.
