Thirteen-year-old Jonathan is too young to fight with the colonists against the British, but that doesn't stop him from sneaking off to participate in a local skirmish. When he sees the precise formation of Hessians marching toward him and his fellow patriots, however, he is confronted with the horrors and ambiguities of war. George Guidall's narration captures the drama and desperation of Jonathan's plight. He's adept at capturing accents, especially the German spoken by the Hessians. The presentation concludes with a brief explanation by Avi of the origins of the book. P.B.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 95]
