Publisher's Summary

A comprehensive look at the brutal wilderness war that secured America's independence...
With 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 Wilderness War of 1777".

Saratoga campaign realistically explained

Being a history interested guy and having read about the wilderness campaigns before I was surprised how much more information there is on this phase of the woodlands war I did not have a clue about. The campaign is described in exceptional detail, and the view shifts from personal insights of military and civilian persons to explanations of what is happening on a larger scale minute by minute. Well explained smaller skirmishes receive their deserved roles in the larger campaign. Great book!
