Summary
"The American War for Independence was under way before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This history explores the army's early failures in Canada, with desertion and disease common among the ranks, and how new leadership disciplined and reorganized the army and set the stage for a key victory at Saratoga in 1777"--Provided by publisher
