Mô tả sản phẩm

Product Description

While the American Revolution seemed on the verge of defeat on December 25, 1776, George Washington had assessed the weaknesses and strengths of his situation, and while steadfastly focusing on ultimate victory, reacted to the complex situation and developments over the next ten days to turn the psychological—if not the strictly military—situation completely around.

On December 25, 1776, the American Revolution seemed all but defeated just six months after the Declaration of Independence had been adopted. George Washington’s army had suffered a series of defeats in New York and had retreated under British pressure across New Jersey and then the Delaware River to temporary sanctuary in Pennsylvania. This left the British army in a string of winter cantonments across the middle of New Jersey, the New Jersey state government in total disarray, and the Continental Congress fleeing Philadelphia now perceived as the next British target. Loyalists in New Jersey felt empowered and Patriots felt abandoned. Washington needed not only a battlefield victory, but also to reestablish Patriot control in New Jersey. Otherwise, it would be impossible to raise a larger, long-term army to continue the fight and convince the citizens that victory was possible.

The story of these ten crucial days is one that displays Washington’s military and interpersonal abilities along with his personal determination and bravery to keep the Revolution alive through maintaining the psychological confidence of the Patriots, while reducing the psychological confidence of his British political and military opponents. Throughout these ten days, Washington was faced with changing situations requiring modifications or outright different plans and his well-thought-out actions benefitted from elements of luck—such as the weather or British decisions—which he could not control.

While most books look at these ten crucial days focusing on the military actions of the armies involved, this account also considers what was happening in other parts of the world. Leaders and ordinary people in other parts of America, in Britain, and in France were also dealing with the Revolution as they understood its condition. Without the instantaneous communication we have today, they were dealing with dated information and were missing knowledge that could influence their thoughts about the Revolution. This lack of immediate communication was also true—although to lesser extent—for the individuals directly involved in the events in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Review

"Larry Kidder walks with us in the bloody footprints of Washington's soldiers as they changed the history of the world in ten days, in this electrifying testament to the qualities of the human spirit."  -- Edward G. Lengel, author of "General George Washington: A Military Life"

"
Ten Crucial Days represents the very best kind of immersive history. Readers will feel like they were there with those British and American soldiers who fought and survived or died during the pivotal Trenton to Princeton campaign of late 1776, early 1777. Many huzzahs to author William L. Kidder for producing this thoroughly researched, easy-to-read volume focusing on the epic events that breathed new life into the faltering cause of liberty. Highly recommended... Deserves a wide readership."  -- James Kirby Martin, author of the award winning "Benedict Arnold, Revolutionary Hero: An American Warrior Reconsidered"

"Larry Kidder's 
Ten Crucial Days takes you step by step across the wintery landscape of southern New Jersey. Based on extensive research in primary sources drawn from all sides of the conflict, Kidder introduces the reader to the deeply personal experiences of officers and common soldiers alike during what pamphleteer Thomas Paine called in December of 1776, 'the times that try men's souls.'" -- Bob Selig, Historical Consultant, Project Historian, Washington Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail

"Larry Kidder has given us a meticulously researched and deeply informed account of the 'Ten Crucial Days' in our struggle for independence from Great Britain. His work reflects the impressive scholarship and extensive knowledge of this subject for which he is known and provides the reader with a wealth of information about one of the most critical periods in American history."  -- David Price, author of "Rescuing the Revolution: Unsung Patriot Heroes and the Ten Crucial Days of America's War for Independence" and "The Road to Assunpink Creek: Liberty's Desperate Hour and the Ten Crucial Days of the American Revolution"

"Stryker, Smith, Dwyer, Fischer, and now... Kidder. His 
Ten Crucial Days: Washington's Vision for Victory Unfolds is a masterful addition to the literature of Trenton and Princeton. Kidder mines overlooked sources, corrects standing errors, and presents a clear, concise, and accurate picture of the campaign. Relying heavily on original narratives, he offers the opposing participants' own observations, giving the reader a feeling of immediacy. The action flows smoothly, carrying us from the dark days of the retreat to the triumphant march to Morristown."  -- Bill Welsch, President, American Revolutionary War Round Table (ARRT) - Richmond and Co - Founder of the Congress of ARRTs
