Narrator Traber Burns skillfully uses his deep voice in reading this fascinating account of boys who were under age 16 when they enlisted in the American struggle for independence from Great Britain. Cox uses records of pension applications as her springboard to recount the experiences of particular veterans, fleshing out her narrative of these boy soldiers' experiences with letters, memoirs, and other sources that paint a picture of boys who had to quickly grow into manhood. Burns's delivery is controlled and clear, moving at a steady pace that is easy to follow. He provides just the right amount of inflection to keep listeners interested in the text while still being faithful to the nature of this somewhat academic work.
