ISBN: 9780805046816
New York, NY: Henry Holt & Co., 1997. First Edition. Hardcover. Often cited as the finest historian on the Revolutionary War, Richard M. Ketchum (1922-2012) was perhaps the most authoritative and well respected voice in Revolutionary War scholarship. Defined by a second-to-none level of academic rigor, Ketchum’s oeuvre contains such works as: “Decisive Day: The Battle for Bunker Hill” (1962), “The Winter Soldiers: The Battles for Trenton and Princeton” (1973), “The World of George Washington” (1974), “Divided Loyalties: How the American Revolution Came to New York” (2002), “Victory at Yorktown: The Campaign That Won the Revolution” (2004), and of course the topic of today's curation “Saratoga: Turning Point of America’s Revolutionary War” (1999). Detailing perhaps the most significant event in the, arguably, most significant war in the history of the United States, “Saratoga” vividly depicts and unpacks the events of Summer 1777. Ketchum’s concise, sharp, and often prosaic writing lifts one out of the present and casts them into a bygone age of muskets, sabers, and valor. “Saratoga” is the perfect volume for any and all American history enthusiasts! We have found and retained, between front cover and first paste down page a half torn-out page of the Travel section of “The Washington Times” dated December 9, 2000.
