Being from New England, where the Revolution began, I took an interest in this book right away. The author clearly admires George Washington but portrays him in a human light. Also of interest is the heavy-handedness of George III and Parliament by which they hoped to subdue the rebellion and British Gen. Howes plan to carry it out.
