The Day Is Ours: An Inside View of the Battles of Trenton and Princeton, November 1776-January 1777
Paperback. 448 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 1.1in.The Day is Ours! is a dramatic account of two battles that turned the tide of the American Revolution. In this distinguished, highly readable, and richly detailed narrative history, William M. Dwyer reveals as vivid a picture as we are likely to see of a critical period in the American Revolution. He lets the participants--from American, British, and Hessian soldiers to myriad fearful and ambivalent citizens--tell the story in their own words. Telling the story from the perspective, and often the words, of men in the ranks, Dwyer has written a dramatic account of this turning point in the American Revolution. --James M. McPherson, author of Battle Cry of FreedomDwyer has cast his net wide, taking advantage of newly found or long-obscure accounts published during the celebration of the Revolutions bicentennial. We learn exactly how it was in that momentous time, from letters, diaries and recollections of officers and men on both sides and civilians caught in the middle. --New York Times Book ReviewDwyer has put together a wonderful, lively account that reflects a reporters respect for quotes from eyewitnesses . . . He presents the facts and lets history speak for itself. The result is enthralling. --The Philadelphia InquirerThe courage of the common soldier who stayed and fought when the sunshine patriots had all gone home is a story that deserves to be told--and Mr. Dwyer has told it well. --The Wall Street Journal This item ships from multiple locations.
