I picked up this book at the Saratoga Battlefield park when it was recommended by several of the Park Rangers They are right It is indeed a wonderful read I stayed up very late four nights running because I couldn t put the book downKetchum covers the entire campaign from it s inception in Canada and London down to the disposition of the pow s and the Courts Maritial for Schuyler and St Clair Courts Maritial in those days were a combination of peer review after action review and military justice with ability to levy sanctions or absolve the participants Many times a commander would specifically demand one Both Schuyler and St Clair were absolved of any wrongdoing English politics prevented Burgoyne from getting one Ketchum s techniue is to describe what individual participants saw or heard at key points during the campaign He selects these very wisely and cements them together with an excellent if somewhat informal writing style I also appreciated his approach on notes Rather than give a formal and very dry note he describes the sources he used why he used them and very importantly what he thought about the uality of each source An informal approach and perhaps not sufficiently academically rigorous but one that reached out and dragged me into the storyThe Campaign itself was a fiasco for the English Burgoyne moved from Canada down Lakes Champlain and George uickly overrunning American military posts there New York Colony resources were clearly insufficient to halt him and a secondary attack by St Leger along the Mohawk Valley Burgoyne then transferred to land travel marching towards Albany his movements threatened New England which caused those states to mobilize and send military support to the American Army At the same time the English armies along the coastal plain declined to support Burgoyne allowing Washington to send a significant part of his army in support This and the long supply line to Canada changed the balance of forces from the English outnumbering the Americans 2 or 3 to one to teh Americans outnumbering the English 2 or 3 to one The English Army finally ran out steam just north of the strategic town of Albany They were stopped at the Battle of Saratoga and then surrounded and forced to surrender as they tried to retreat to Lake GeorgeI would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Saratoga Battle and Campaign the Revolutionary War Military History or even curious about who the folks who lived and participated in the Revolution New Yorker New Englander British or German
