    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.

    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    The author in this book does a great job of making the individual soldiers and leaders of the time come to life. The anecdotes the author uses, mostly or all from primary sources, make the people involved in the military campaign in New Jersey seem frighteningly like people you might meet today. It's a remarkable story, made all the more so by the author's narrative style, which is easy to follow, and doesn't assume much about your background knowledge of the era. This is far, far better than the hackneyed stuff of grade school textbooks.

    "Its mission is to document everyday life in this country. We sometimes think of it as a documentary show for people who normally hate documentaries. A public radio show for people who don't necessarily care for public radio. What we look for in putting the show together are stories that we love, truly love." Get the latest issue or subscribe!

    "I love this show"
    Overall

    I've tried to bring myself to subscribe to periodicals on audible besides this one. I can't. This show is head and shoulders above the others even on NPR, which has consistently excellent programming. Although some weeks are better than others, the creativity and out-thereness of some of the contributors astonishes me regularly.
