An OK read, but not up to the quality of the prior books in the series.
While keeping a tight line on the historical facts surround this critical time in US history, the latest by this wonderful hisotrical novel team falls short of the mark when compared to its predecessors, "To Try Men's Souls" and "Valley Forge". The Revolution is at a critical stage and success or failure is in the hands of the country's French allies and the French fleet. The revolutionary army and the French army march out, unsure of the support of the fleet and in fact, the very outcome of the revolution.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It is a suspense-filled, intelligent read but has the feel of being thrown togethr quickly to follow-up on prior successes and ends "not with a bang, but a whimper".
