I bought it for my father for fathers day, he loved it, and I just started it myself. I'm reading it more to extend my limited knowledge of that part of history, not for entertainment. Hopefully I can kill two birds with one stone.

Yes, I finished that book several months ago. Paints a good picture of the events and struggles that became America. I was floored at some of the problems that Washington was faced with, taking everyday working class and making them into a fighting force with a very early stages of congress. Overall, it was a good description of the three battles that turned the tide and established our independence.

Currently, reading my second Vince Flynn novel. Enjoy.
