Valley Forge: Starving, broke, and battle-weary, the Continental Army hunkers down in Pennsylvania for a long cold winter -- and emerges as an entirely different fighting force. Cowpens: The southern clash where Daniel Morgan's tactics brilliantly outsmart his enemy. Yorktown: Washington's unyielding attack victoriously ends eight long years of suffering -- and win liberty for the colonies.Each chapter also profiles the Revolution's most fascinating leaders -- Benedict Arnold, Lafayette, Francis Marion, Henry Knox --and discusses the era's complicated politics, including slavery." --back cover.
