Summary:

"In chronological order, Great Battles for Boys: The American Revolution takes young readers to the front lines of the war's major clashes such as: Long Island: British General Howe crushes Washington's forces and proves the odds are against the Patriot forces. Battle of Trenton: Washington's stunning reversal following his famous Christmas Eve "crossing the Delaware." Valley Forge: Starving, broke, and battle-weary, the Continental Army hunkers down in Pennsylvania for a long cold winter -- and emerges as an entirely different fighting force. Cowpens: The southern clash where Daniel Morgan's tactics brilliantly outsmart his enemy. Yorktown: Washington's unyielding attack victoriously ends eight long years of suffering -- and win liberty for the colonies.Each chapter also profiles the Revolution's most fascinating leaders -- Benedict Arnold, Lafayette, Francis Marion, Henry Knox --and discusses the era's complicated politics, including slavery." --back cover.
