    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and it was an advance reader's edition paperback.For some reason, I love reading about the Revolutionary War and am amazed at the new things I learn with every gook. What doesn't change is my amazement that we actually won our independence....With zero military experience, I really enjoy all of the strategy and planning [or not] that went into a battle.

    This is a wonderfully concise description of the event leading up to and the travails of Valley Forge. The authors have made a readable and enjoyable almost novel=like book that is hard to put down even if you know already what happened.

They used the same symbols in each chapter, just adding to the number of symbols for each following chapter, such as %, %%, %%%, ...
