Reviews

* "Murphy offers a refreshingly frank, vivid, well-researched account of a pivotal time in American history." -- Booklist, starred review

"Whereas purely chronological histories drag readers' attention from one theater of war to another, Murphy concentrates on the troops directly under Washington's command in the events leading up to the battles of Trenton and Princeton, so that each step or misstep is as riveting as if readers were following at the heels of 'the old fox.'" -- School Library Journal
