Rabble in Arms
by Kenneth Roberts

A spellbinding story, mostly fictitious, of Burgoine's campaign. It glorifies Bennedict Arnold as a military genius and super-hero and deprecates Congress from a Federalist point of view.

The story relies on incredible coincidences and conspiracies. The main characters in the novel are decisive factors in all the historic events of the campaign.

Year Read: 1975
