Product description

Pursued by British forces, Washington and his remaining 5,000 men resolved on a risky strike against the British and Hessian positions across the Delaware River. Crossing the river, Washington took the Trenton garrison for the loss of only four men, before outflanking Cornwallis' 8,000-strong force and marching on Princeton. His military reputation established, Washington's victory restored American morale and turned the tide of the war.

"It is a great book, especially for the student of the Revolutionary War and shows how even small victories can help turn the tide. A book I know you will enjoy reading." -Scott Van Aken, "modelingmadness.com" (February 2009)
