    Don't waste your time!

    Begins with a promising start but then takes a nose dive into redundancy and boredom. Not really sure why I bought the book. I was expecting alot more and I felt disappointed with the end result. Would not recommend it to anyone seriously studing the American Revolution. It just seemed like the author was reaching for a story and nothing else.

    Disappointing.

    While the title seems promising, the book fails to deliver. It begins with an interesting discussion of a hurricane that struck the southeast coast of the colonies at the early stages of the revolution. However, thereafter the story dissolves into seemingly unrelated short stories about the beginnings of the war without any connection or logic. Disjointed, slow, and very repetitious, this might have made a nice magazine article, but fails as a full length manuscript.
