    Kenneth Roberts, historical fiction at its best

    When I was 13 years old in 1964, my father bought me Rabble in Arms for one of those days I was sick at home from school. What doors were opened that day! Roberts is my favorite historical novelist of all time. Arundel and its semi-sequel, Rabble in Arms, are my favorites, along with Oliver Wiswell. Through these books the reader can gain a real feel for the trials and tribulations suffered by all during the American Revolution. Roberts strips the gilt off of a few of our 'heroes' and awakens us to the contribution made by others, perhaps played down too much in our general histories. Most of all, he helps us to feel the emotions of the era -- the revolution was, after all, a bitter civil war between neighbors. Tories were not all elite high society nor were patriots all noble souls. In the end, the steadiness and commitment of Washington among others, and the timeliness of de Grasse's arrival off Yorktown, brought about the last (and so rare) great victory. The committed soldiers overcame the effects of a patronage system of appointing officers inherited from Great Britain and perpetuated by an often-meddling Continental Congress. British arrogance and refusal to coordinate strategy made a heavy contribution to their defeat. Oliver Wiswell, the story of an American Loyalist, portrays the frustration of the Tories with British commanders extremely well. Roberts is excellent reading without any of the stuff that sells books in airports today.

    Excellent historical fiction

    Accidentally discovered this Maine author and have the added bonus of living in Maine along the Kennebec River where many events take place. His works are excellent, informative and the characters become personal to you. One must continue the story with his other books. I compare him with another of my favorite authors, Allan W. Eckert,a six time Pultizer Prize nominee.
