Historical Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • ©

Shaara, who is known for his novels of the Civil War, this time tells the story of the American Revolution. As a prelude, events before Washington's appointment as General-in-Chief are described. The action begins with the failed campaign of New York City in the fall of 1776. We then follow the course of the war through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the Carolinas to the British surrender at Yorktown in October 1781. The story concludes with the dismissal of Washington's staff at Fraunces's Tavern in New York City in 1783. Barry Bostwick's performance of this abridgment is superb. He is spirited in his delivery, yet never overbearing. French, German, and other accents are skillfully rendered. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
