In the summer of 1777 - two years after Lexington, Concord, and Bunker Hill, twelve months after the brave Declaration of Independence - the British launched an invasion from Canada under General John Burgoyne. It was the campaign that was supposed to end the rebellion, but it resulted instead in a series of battles that changed America's history and that of the world.
Basing his vivid account on the participants' diaries and letters, Richard Ketchum brings to life as never before the inspiring story of Americans like ourselves who did their utmost in what seemed a lost cause, achieving what proved to be the crucial victory of the Revolution.
