    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.

    Overall

    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.

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Overall

    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.
