SummaryAdd a Summary
Sleet. Freezing gusts of wind. Dark, rushing water. No light. Any sound uttered could betray the Continental army crossing the wide Delaware River in the dead of Christmas night, 1776. The fate of the United States itself is hanging on this desperate gamble. Concocted by General George Washington, the plan to capture the town of Trenton was an attempt to resuscitate the dying embers of the American Revolution that had suffered a long list of consecutive defeats at the hands of the British empire. David Hackett Fisher's account of the Battles of Trenton crackles with intensity and delivers the pace not unlike that of a bonafide thriller. It is only with an understanding of how close to failure our founding figures were that we truly understand the achievement of their success.
