Overview

Prelude to Glory Vol, 3: Decide Our Destiny by Ron Carter, Deseret Book Company

By the end of 1776, the Continental army is faced with the overwhelming truth that they are losing the Revolution. The British have pummeled them with a series of bloody battles that have shattered the American army and have forced them into a desperate retreat. Now, the American camp crouches helplessly on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River as the British move more than three thousand Hessian soldiers into position. Only the black waters of the Delaware River prevent a total ruin. Only a desperate plan promises a chance of success. This third volume in the Prelude to Glory series, To Decide Our Destiny, focuses on General George Washington as he makes the hard decision to command his struggling and beaten army once more before the soldiers' enlistments expire at the end of the year. In a torrential blizzard on Christmas Day, Washington and his army cross the Delaware River and march into history. Throughout the battles of Trenton and Princeton, the discouraged soldiers soon find hope and success as events unfold under the touch of divine intervention. In this third volume, the familiar characters of Billy and Eli, along with the Dunson family and Mary Flint, again witness the dramatic events of the Revolutionary War.

This is fascinating reading about true events in history. I had no idea until I read Ron Carters series that the Revolutionary War could hold my interest in a feverish vice. I learned about muskets, Pennsylvania Long Rifles, and canons, ships and their workings, the evolution of our government and so much more in a way all should learn it. I learned about the minds of Generals, Admirals, and found myself applying their thoughts to aspects of my own life. My emotions were deeply stirred from the dreadful conditions of the soldiers who fought hungry, half frozen, and dressed in rags for the priviledges we now enjoy. And they did it without pay. I wanted to run back in time through the pages of the book to feed those poor sickly men, and throw a blanket over their shoulders. Yet there were heartwarming and inspiring moments also. Being a little suspicious of accuracy in the first volume, I consistantly checked with the Library of Congress to see if the dates, characters and events were actual and they were. A wonderful way to become acquainted with the personalities of our forefathers, enter their tents and drop in on their war counsels.
