The Crossing: A Novel
Open Road Media, 27/12/2011 - 248 páginas
A novel about George Washington’s trip across the Delaware River and the Battle of Trenton by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Spartacus.
Immortalized on canvas by Emanuel Leutze, Washington’s journey across the Delaware River is one of the most celebrated moments in American history. But the true story of the crossing, and of what came after, is often lost in the legend. In The Crossing, Howard Fast, author of The Immigrants and April Morning, writes with striking historical detail and relentless narrative drive about Washington’s surprise attack, leading the Continental Army to its Revolutionary War victory against the one thousand Hessian mercenaries in Trenton, New Jersey—a momentous occasion in American history.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.
