Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nobody has written more passionately or more vividly about the American Revolution

than Howard Fast. The legendary living author of Freedom Road and Citizen

Tom Paine, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Spartacus and

the triumphant survivor of Hollywood's notorious blacklist of the fifties, Howard

Fast is a part of American history.

This definitive new edition of Fast's novel, with photographs from the A&E

film, reverberates with the dramatic events of Washington's re-crossing of the

Delaware-a pivotal moment in the American Revolution.

It is an amazing testament to Washington's leadership of the young volunteer

army fighting in summer clothes against the bitter cold, the snow and the almost

impassable Delaware River.

Criss-crossing through Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut and

New York, this is also the tale of Colonel John Glover, the leader of a band

of New England fishermen, of Tom Paine, the first American war correspondent;

and the dreaded German Hessians themselves

Dispelling the myths of history, Howard Fast has written an unforgettable and

true account of a key event in America's struggle for independence that all

Americans should know and understand.
