Overview

In the fall of 1776 the British delivered a crushing blow. New York fell and the anguished retreat through New Jersey followed. Winter came with a vengeance, bringing what Thomas Paine called “the times that try men’s souls.”

The Winter Soldiers is the story of a small band of men held together by George Washington in the face of disaster and hopelessness, desperately needing at least one victory to salvage both cause and country. It is a tale of unimaginable hardship and suffering that culminated in the battles of Trenton and Princeton. Without these triumphs, the rebellion that had begun so bravely could not have gone on.

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Richard M. Ketchum graduated from Yale Unviersity and commanded a subchaser in the South Atlantic during World War II. As director of book publishing at American Heritage Publishing Company for twenty years, he edited many of that firm’s volumes, including The American Heritage Book of the Revolution and The American Heritage Picture History of the Civil War, which received a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation. Ketcham was the cofounder and editor of Blair & Ketcham’s Country Journal, a monthly magazine about rural life. He and his wife live on a sheep farm in Vermont. He is the author of two other Revolutionary War classics: Decisive Day and The Winter Soldiers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Set out in a lively and clear narrative, with vivid but honest detail." —The Economist
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The American Revolution is chronicled in these companion volumes: the first describes the Revolution's early days, while the second profiles key political figures, the situation in England and later military campaigns. According to PW , `` The Winter Soldiers is a workmanlike recreation of events but unfortunately has the pedestrian tone of a high school history text.'' Photos. Aug.

    Captivating Reading

    Written for the general history reader, this work details the battles of Trenton and Princeton with amazing clarity. Having read other works on the subject that were written primarily for historians, I believe this book to be most entertaining and informative. Ketchum weaves a detailed narrative that captivates the reader's attention. Simply stated, it is a hard book to put down.

    Ketchum Writes Vibrant History

    Ketchum's artistry gives vivid new life to those famous, but musty, lessons from grade-school history class, and reaquaints us with the excitement and drama and tenousness of General Washington's guerilla war against the British...fought in bitter cold by farmboys, poorly clothed and armed, yet led by officers capable of producing chess-like tactical maneuvers.

    An informative and inspiring book!

    This book is not merely about a war. This book is about 'The times that try men's souls...' as Thomas Paine described the disgrace and triumph of the retreat through New Jersey. Battle, Politics, Biographies, this book is masterfully written- informative and inspirational. It is a must read for any military enthusiast.
