Overview

The #1 New York Times bestselling book for many weeks, Jack Levin presents a beautifully designed account of George Washington’s historic crossing of the Delaware River and the decisive Battle of Trenton, with a foreword by his son, #1 New York Times bestselling author and radio host Mark R. Levin.

With the warm-hearted patriotism and passion he brought to his beautiful volume Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address Illustrated, Jack E. Levin illuminates a profound turning point of the American Revolution: the decisive Battle of Trenton and its prelude—General George Washington leading his broken and ailing troops in a fleet of small wooden boats across the ice-encased Delaware River.

While one iconic nineteenth-century painting made the crossing a familiar image, the significance of the against-all-odds victory put into motion on Christmas night, 1776, cannot be told enough. Jack Levin brings to light several vital perspectives, and draws his text from General Washington’s letter to the Continental Congress to describe the amazing account of the unlikely defeat of the Hessian army at Trenton.

As a father, Jack Levin inspired his sons—including Mark Levin, and Douglas, and Robert—with his love for America. Around the family table, he would share the facts and events of the nation’s founding, spark lively debates, and pass along his extensive knowledge and his deep and abiding patriotism. Featuring Revolution-era artwork, portraiture, and maps, George Washington: The Crossing imparts the same vivid, intimate telling, that of a father to his sons—the kind of history lesson that lives in the heart forever.

    You are there ,,.

    Being an avid history buff, I found this to be an interesting and easy to read narrative of Washington's attack on Trenton that cold Christmas night of 1776 and the "ragged ragamuffins" of the Continental Army who pulled it off. The narrative style made me feel as though I were physically present watching the whole proceedings from an aerial viewpoint. I recommend this to anyone interested in the history of our American Revolution.

    Highly Recommend - Jack hits this one out of the ballpark!

    Jack Levin is a true patriot as is Mark whom we all know and love! 'The Crossing' nails the events of this time right on the head. It is a short book, but with awesome details and pics depicting the time period. Jack puts the reader there at the scene.

    Concise and Inspiring

    A great little book. You can read it in a day or two. Uplifting story of a desperately needed turn-around at a time when all appeared lost for the American Revolution. Pray that we can do it again.
