Joseph Plumb Martin--"Private Yankee Doodle"--recreated as no one else has ever done the daily life of the Revolutionary soldier. He witholds nothing of the hard times: the fright, pain, and death of battle... the grinding agony of marches without rest or sleep... the days of belly-twisting hunger. But he balances these dangers and sufferings with accounts of diversions--hunting, fishing, boxing--of pranks and frolics, and of encounters with an occasional sassy miss. This new edition has been widely hailed as a rediscovered gem of American history.

This was a great resource when I was homeschooling. Very detailed but the soldier is young so the writing is interesting to school age kids. And the sections are dated and can be referenced easily.

If you're are interested in the US American Revolution this book really brings you into the day to day life of one soldier. Very can only image what they went though!
