Great Read

Awesome

by BillinVA on Sep 25, 2008

David Hackett Fisher's 'Washington's Crossing" is possibly one of the best military history books I've ever read. The prose is clear and engaging. The content well researched. If you enjoy good writing and accurate history, this book is for you. More
