Richard M. Ketchum Ó 9 Summary Review ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ó Richard M. Ketchum Free read ì Saratoga Turning Point of America's Revolutionary War 109 In the summer of 1777 twelve months after the Declaration of Independence the British launched an invasion from Canada under General John Burgoyne It was the campaign that was supposed to the rebellion but. I don t think much can be added to the previous reviews of this excellent book The author has produced a well written and researched account of this great and interesting period of history At times I felt for the British and wanted them to win and at other times I felt for the American forces It s a great book if you can see both sides of the story and come away impressed with both points of view I thoroughly loved reading this book at no time did it get bogged down or boring The use of first hand accounts from participants on both sides were well placed and utilised As usual I would have liked maps but those provided were OK For a person like myself who does not have much knowledge of the American Revolution this is a great book I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys general history or who wants to learn about America s past Well done to the author
