"Even as Minutemen battled Redcoats during the Revolutionary War, an elite corps of American special operations troops waged a shadow war against the British forces, and episodes from this covert campaign are the thrilling subject of 'The Patriot Spy.'"

An exciting look at early battles of the Revolutionary War with the
concomitant development of a military intelligence mission. Well drawn
characters you care about, struggling in the dangerous circumstances of
the time. I very much look forward to the next book in this series.

As a former history professor at the university level, I wish we had had more works of this quality to share with students. This book is extremely well-written; the story moves well, the characters, especially the protagonist, Jeremiah Creed, are very well-developed, and the battle scenes put the reader right in the middle of the action. On top of this, the historical setting is accurate. One can read an exciting novel and learn history at the same time. Such a deal!! I compare this book favorably with Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

An interesting story about a fairly neglected area of military historical fiction. The author gives hints of the back-stories to come, which promises well-developed characters as well as good plotting and pacing. The first book is an indicator of what promises to be an exciting series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
