    This New York Times best seller is a thrilling account of one of the most pivotal moments in United States history. Six months after the Declaration of Independence, America was nearly defeated. Then on Christmas night, George Washington led his men across the Delaware River to destroy the Hessians at Trenton. A week later Americans held off a counterattack, and in a brilliant tactical move, Washington crept behind the British army to win another victory. The momentum had reversed.

    William says: "Particularly Good Military History"
    "A well-read story of the Revolution"
    Overall

    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.

    Before General MacArthur could fulfill his stirring promise of "I shall return" and retake the Philippines from Japanese control, a remarkable rescue mission would have to take place. Captured American soldiers, emaciated and ill from brutal mistreatment, were still being held at the notorious Cabanatuan prison camp. A small band of Army Rangers set out on a daring rescue effort: to penetrate thirty miles into Japanese-controlled territory, storm the camp, and escape with the POWs...

    "A Great Story"
    Overall

    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.
