......And so the Courage and Determination of various collections of militias from various parts of the old colonies showed the Bloody British and the rest of the world that the Rebels could fight and win out over one the world's foremost best trained armies in their own way and on their own terms.
The British learned that it was not a good idea to march even a highly skilled well disciplined professional army down roads surrounded by forests and angry American Rebels.
1777 is an hour by hour account of what many consider to be the turning point in the American Revolution.The indecision and excellent organizational skills of Gates,the hot headed Benedict Arnold,Gentlemen Johnny Burgoyne and MANY more characters and facts both familiar and unfamiliar are all there.
A major factor in the American success was that through the efforts of the governor of New York, the American forces were for a change Very Well Supplied.If you want historical detail and a lot of things you didn't know about Saratoga this is the book for you. If you don't,wait for a historical novel "Shaara"version to come along.
I would read both.
