"The Glorious Cause"

I recently enjoyed reading The Glorious Cause, a historic novel about the American revolutionary war.

Author Jeff Shaara begins just after the signing of the Declaration of Independence and tells the story of the war through the end at Yorktown. I've read several of Shaara's books; he is a master storyteller. Although the book is over 600 pages long, it is an easy and enjoyable read.

Shaara focuses primarily on the actions of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Nathanael Greene, and Charles Cornwallis. It is interesting to get inside the minds of these men.

If you enjoy history, this book will not disappoint.
