    In this stirring book, the acclaimed, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian ('Truman,' 'John Adams') tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence - when the whole American cause was riding on their success, without which all hope for independence would have dissolved. The darkest hours of that tumultuous year were as dark as any Americans have known. The book is testimony to how much is owed to a rare few in that brave founding epoch.

     “A revisionist view of the Revolution’s most crucial year… it explodes many of the myths surrounding Burgoyne’s Canadian expedition and Howe’s Pennsylvania campaign. There is a wealth of fascinating detail in this book, including information on arms and supplies, rations for women camp followers, and even the numbers of carts (30-odd) carrying Burgoyne’s luggage.” --History Book Club Newsletter

    On January 9, 1776, an obscure recent immigrant named Thomas Paine published a small pamphlet of only '46 sheets' that would prove a paradigmatic shift of the political landscape, which in turn altered the course of American history. Paine's 'Common Sense' passionately argued the cause for American independence, changing minds, stirring emotions, and spreading like wildfire and gaining a groundswell of popular support as it went. The present study captures the essence of Paine's work and its impact on this pivotal time in America's founding. Notes, bibliography, index. 174p.

  • Almost a Miracle: The American Victory in the War of Independence

    • Published: March 2009
    In this gripping chronicle of America's struggle for independence, award-winning historian John Ferling transports readers to the grim realities of that war, capturing an eight-year conflict filled with heroism, suffering, cowardice, betrayal, and fierce dedication. As Ferling demonstrates, it was a war that America came much closer to losing than is now usually remembered. General George Washington put it best when he said that the American victory was "little short of a standing miracle."Almost a Miracle offers an illuminating portrait of America's triumph, offering vivid descriptions of all the major engagements, from the first shots fired on Lexington Green to the surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown, revealing how these battles often hinged on intangibles such as leadership under fire, heroism, good fortune, blunders, tenacity, and surprise. Ferling paints sharp-eyed portraits of the key figures in the war, including General Washington and other American officers and civilian leaders. Some do not always measure up to their iconic reputations, including Washington himself. The book also examines the many faceless men who soldiered, often for years on end, braving untold dangers and enduring abounding miseries. The author explains why they served and sacrificed, and sees them as the forgotten heroes who won American independence.
