Benedict Arnold's Navy: The Ragtag Fleet That Lost the Battle of Lake Champlain but Won the American Revolution
McGraw Hill Professional, 2006. gada 12. maijs - 416 lappuses
An epic story of one mans devotion to the American cause
In October 1776, four years before Benedict Arnolds treasonous attempt to hand control of the Hudson River to the British, his patch-work fleet on Lake Champlain was all that stood between British forces and a swift end to the American rebellion.
Benedict Arnolds Navy is the dramatic chronicle of that desperate battle and of the extraordinary events that occurred on the American Revolutions critical northern front. Written with captivating narrative vitality, this landmark book shows how Benedict Arnolds fearless leadership against staggering odds in a northern wilderness secured for America the independence that he would later try to betray.
Praise for James L. Nelson:
"James Nelson is a master both of his period and of the English language."
"James L. Nelson tells this story with clarity and literary skill and with such ease and order that the reader feels he is attending a dissertation on history given by a consummate lecturer."
"It is, by far, the best Civil War novel Ive read; reeking of battle, duty, heroism and tragedy. Its a triumph of imagination and good, taut writing . . . "
