    Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen have turned their sharp eye for detail on the Revolutionary War. Their story follows three men with three very different roles to play in history: General George Washington, Thomas Paine, and Jonathan Van Dorn, a private in Washington's army. The action focuses on one of the most iconic events in American history: Washington crossing the Delaware.

    Overall

    This novel should be required reading for all members of the US Congress. I really think in all of our current arguing and striving we forget the trials and tribulations of the founding fathers and just plain, ordinary, stubborn citizens.

    These citizens were willing to tell the greatest nation of the day "It ain't right!" Then, they were willing to stake their lives, honor and fortunes on independence and to form a new nation.

    No other nation, has given so much to the world with so little appreciation. We need to revisit our history and learn why we have the freedoms other nation can even dream of.

    And yes, the history books do say, that one could track George Washington's soldiers by the bloody footprints in the snow. Novels such as To Try Men's Souls help us not to forget the sacrifices of our forebearers.

    Last thought, personally, I am beginning not to care that so many in the world hate America or even why. But, they should keep in mind what happens if we in America get angry. Perhaps they, the enemies of the US, should read this novel and fear.
