This book goes far beyond the crucial Battle
of Trenton fought during the Christmas of
1776, when Washington’s forces defeated the
Hessian troops holding the town. The author
also covers equally critical events leading
up to that battle and in its aftermath. Best
of all, perhaps, is his detailed analysis
of American, British, and Hessian military
organization and practice. He also debunks
a few well-worn myths. For example, the Hessians
were not hung over from Christmas revelry
when surprised by Washington.
