The story of this famous battle, told through the eyes of the combatants. The compelling narrative and thorough research bring the people and era alive in this wonderful book that was selected as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year in 1997. Ketchum shows how the rag-tag Colonial army prevented Burgoyne from dividing the colonies and gaining control of the Hudson. He has used original letters, diaries and field documents to show why this battle was so important. Ketchum is also the author of Decisive Day: the Battle for Bunker Hill and The Winter Soldiers: The Battles for Trenton and Princeton. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
