John S. Pancake (1920-1986) was a native of Virginia, Professor of History at The University of Alabama, and author of studies on Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton.

REVIEWS:

“A revisionist view of the Revolution’s most crucial year, it explodes many of the myths surrounding Burgoyne’s Canadian expedition and Howe’s Pennsylvania campaign. There is a wealth of fascinating detail in this book, including information on arms and supplies, rations for women camp followers, and even the numbers of carts (30-odd) carrying Burgoyne’s luggage.”

History Book Club Newsletter

“Smooth and easy reading, enlivened by anecdotes (with which the author has a sure touch) and based on extensive research.”

Journal of American History

“Pancake is nicely balanced in his judgments, writes with grace and wit, and has a thorough knowledge of secondary sources and published documents.”

CHOICE

“A timely addition to the literature of the War of Independence, useful both to scholars and to general readers.”

American Historical Review

“A welcome addition to the literature on the American War for Independence.”

Western Pennsylvania Historical Magazine
