Résumé:

John Luzader's Saratoga: A Military History of the Decisive Campaign of the American Revolution is first all-encompassing objective account of pivotal months in American history. British General John Burgoyne assembled his command at St. Johns (Canada) in June 1777, intending to capture Albany, New York, take control of Hudson River Valley from colonists, carry war into American interior, secure Champlain-Hudson country, and make troops available for Sir William Howe's 1778 campaign. Burgoyne's primary opponent was General Horatio Gates. The series of battles that Gates and his lieutenants would engineer stunned the world and spun colonial rebellion in entirely different direction. Serious supply problems dogged Burgoyne's column and assistance from General William Howe failed to materialize. Complicated maneuvers and command sparked two major battles, one September 19 at Freeman's Farm and second on October 7 at Bemis Heights. Seared into public consciousness as "the battle of Saratoga," the engagements resulted in defeat and surrender of Burgoyne's entire army. The British defeat boosted Patriot morale and prompted France to recognize American colonies as an independent nation and declare war on England--Publisher's description.
