This is a great book for anyone interested in the Revolutionary Era. It's well written and well read. I also agree with the earlier reviewer that head-to-head this book is better than 1776. However, the 2 books work very well together, since 1776 covers the Boston and NY campaigns in much greater depth. If you only read one, read Washington's Crossing. If you read both, start with 1776.
Be aware that this is in truth only the first part of Book 4, since half the key characters are missing. The writing in the first 3 books was rich & vivid, while this time it was sadly bloated...good, but bloated. GRRM appears to have become a little too enamoured with the world he's created & could use a good editor for part 2 of book 4.
