Synopses & Reviews
A history, from the first colonists' defense against Indian attacks to the firing of the shot heard 'round the world, written by a former NATO commander.
A reprint of the 1967 work (Hawthorn Books). The concept of the farmer and shopkeeper pulling rifles off pegs on the wall to fight the British has been the typical image of the American minuteman. The fact that he may have had military training and drilled usually goes unmentioned. Interesting reading for the student or the professional. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc., Portland, Oregon.
