Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This volume covers the spring of 1777, a period when Washington's resourcefulness and perseverance were tested as much as at any time during the war. It presents in documents and annotations the myriad military and political matters with which Washington dealt when, instead of opening the new campaign by taking the field with a reinvigorated Continental army as planned, he was obliged to spend much of his time pleading with state authorities to fill their recruiting quotas and with officers to bring in the men whom they had enlisted, and was further hampered by a high desertion rate and unhappy officers.
