Son of Liberty: Thaddeus Kosciuszko
by David Abodaher

Less factual than Kosciuszko in the American Revolution by Miecislaus Haiman, but more enjoyable. It is written for children. It fills in with imagination what cannot be known by scholars. It strikes me that K did not appreciate guerilla tactics enough even though he believed in people's armies. Too often he led his men in head-on attacks against superior numbers.

Year Read: 1978
