Washington's Crossing by David Hackett Fischer
Washington's Crossing

Johnnie, January 1, 2010

A short, pivotal period early in the Revolutionary War is covered in detail. Fischer writes easily readable prose but covers the period in great detail. I found his long appendex section on how Washington's Crossing has been used as an icon at least as interesting as the history of the actual action. This is the best history book of the last ten years
