Outstanding detailed, poignant account of the humans, geography, inescapable factors of war and intrigue that led to the surprising, momentous defeat of Gentleman John Burgoyne and his British and German troops at the Battle of Saratoga by an array of American militia and continentals, including the quixotic, distrusted General Benedict Arnold.
