    PDF Washington's Crossing Epub º ↠ teachenglishthailand.co.uk ↠ washington's download, crossing book, Washington's Crossing eBookContinuing my punctuated voyage down the road of Pulitzer winning books this one from Fischer published in 2004 was really good Fischer does a great job explaining the dire situation of the Continental Army as they were obliged to leave New York and flee towards New Jersey At one point there was a real threat that the capital of the colonies Philadelphia would be taken as well Without going too far down the road of sentimental nationalism too often Fischer describes the courage of the rabble that Washington was able to form into a coherent fighting group and the against all odds victories at Trenton and Prince Town now Princeton The descriptions of the actors in this historical drama are all uite interesting I am reading 1776 by McCullough at the moment to see how he describes these same individuals and situations and found it wanting compared to this book by Fischer It strikes me that it would be fascinating to

    PDF Washington's Crossing Epub º ↠ teachenglishthailand.co.uk ↠ washington's download, crossing book, Washington's Crossing eBookA rare and impressive example of a modern academic doing military history and doing it wellYet clearly part of the reason Fischer wrote this book was to provide a kind of on the ground justification for his earlier work of social and cultural history Albion's Seed where he discovered four major folkways in America which he thought descended from four separate waves of migration Sure enough he finds similar divisions here such as that between the ordered liberty of the New England regiments and the levelling liberty of the Pennsylvania Associators Whats surprising perhaps is how convincingly he makes his case describing how the Pennsylvanians for example elected their own officers and forbid sartorial displays of differing rank He further extends his social analysis to those on the British side like the fiercely
