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.
