Saratoga 1777 (Campaign Series, 67)
by Brendan Morrissey.
This campaign is widely believed to have been the turning point in the American battle of independence. British expeditions from New York and Lake Ontario were both turned back leaving General Burgoyne's 11,000 men exposed in the Hudson Valley. The advance was a logistic nightmare and painfully slow. After engagements at Freeman's farm and Bemis Heights' Burgoyne's men were forced to surrender at Saratoga. Amazon.com

The Road to Guilford Courthouse
by John Buchanan
The Road to Guilford Courthouse is no less than a tour de force of pop military scholarship, an exhaustive battle-by-battle account of the Crown's grinding march to wrest the Carolinas from the resourceful Rebels. Beginning with Colonel William Moultrie's valiant defense atop the palmetto ramparts of Fort Sullivan against an outnumbering force of British men-of-war to the final "long, obstinate, and bloody" exchange at Guilford Courthouse, Buchanan meticulously recounts each skirmish, battle, and shift of strategy in the campaign. Relying on copious primary and secondary sources, he brings the combatants to life, from the worthy but somewhat obscure, such as Nathanael Greene, whom George Washington considered to be his successor should he fall, to soon-to-be legends such as Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox. --Paul Hughes - Amazon.com
