Overview

In 1777, aiming to crush the American rebellion and win for himself a lasting fame, British General John Burgoyne sets out from Canada with a massive army. Losing the help of his Indian allies and slowed by the nearly impassable terrain, the flamboyant Burgoyne finds himself locked in the battle of his life at a place called Saratoga. There, under the heroic leadership of General Benedict Arnold, the rustic American force claims an unlikely victory, and a turning point is reached in the American Revolution. Filled with heart-pounding action and true stories of intrigue, bravery, and patriotism, Volume 4 of Prelude to Glory captures the high adventure of America's quest for independence, a struggle that would have surely failed except for the hand of Providence.
