Washington's Crossing

By David Hackett Fischer

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.
