I grew up in northern NJ and from my early elementary years have had an interest in the Revolution. I've visited the site of the Crossing, read about it numerous times, etc., but this well-researched book fascinated me from beginning to end. The enjoyment of the book was enhanced because of my present living near Philadephia and being well-acquainted with the places mentioned. The author relies heavily on journal accounts and letters of soldiers of both sides and provides a compelling look at a series of battles that changed the course of the War.
The quality of the narration and the gripping nature of the story of the rescue of several hundred American POW's made this one of the best audible books I've listened to in the last few years. Higly, highly recommended for WWII buffs as well as for those who like an adventure.
