One thought on “The First American Army: The Untold Story of George Washington and the Men Behind America's First Fight for Freedom

  1. 5 stars for our badass citizen soldiers, minus one star for the authors presentation Chadwick skips around the timeline so much it detracts from the subject matter This was a decent overview of the entire war, and gave me some interesting threads to follow for further reading.


  2. Would have been five with better editing I also think that maps would have been very helpful It does do a good job of explaining what life was like for Revolutionary War foot soldiers and I really enjoyed the account of using sleds to attack Staten Island, during the only time that New York Harbor froze over.


  3. This book tells the story of the Revolutionary War thru the eyes of the common soldier It follows the battles and the trials faced by the common soldier The dangers like starvation, smallpox dysentery and other items that affected them.



  4. Wow Chadwick, using the journals of ordinary soldiers in the Revolution, takes us back in time We see, hear, and feel vividly what went on It was like alternating between M.A.S.H and Glory Yes, the African American Regiment from Rhode Island is given its due, with 2 chapters devoted to it and its phenomenal bravery in holding off the superior British forces in Newport, RI.A Robert Altman wannabe could have a ball making this into a movie The Americans were a randy bunch In staid Boston, soldiers [...]


  5. I chose this book specifically because it mentions Washington s Life Guard, and elite group of men chosen specifically to protect and defend General Washington Not many books are written about or mention his Life Guard which is unfortunate because of their very special role and duty My interest comes from the fact that an ancestor of mine was, along with his friend, hand picked by Washington himself to join this guard My ancestor, John Knight, is not mentioned in this book and neither is his fri [...]


  6. Buku ini merupakan sebuah buku sejarah mengenai Peperangan Kemerdekaan Amerika Syarikat 1775 1783 Namun demikian,apa yang menariknya mengenai buku ini adalah fokus utama diberikan kepada pengalaman yang dirasai oleh anggota anggota tentera militia biasa Bukannya mereka yang berpangkat tinggi dan ternama Penulis menjadikan diari,jurnal dan surat mereka yang terlibat di dalam peperangan tersebut sebagai rujukannya.


  7. An incredible history of the first continental army told through the diaries and accounts of the people who fought in it From a doctor, to a farmer, minister, and 17 yr old who all were inspired to join the American Revolution There are times when the authors writing is not fantastic, but overall it is well put together.


  8. A nice look at the life and conditions of the soldier during the Revolutionary War The writer wrote one chapter of the women during that time and basically called them all camp followers and whores To me, it was a real drawback of the book and lowered the rating.


  9. I honestly can t rate this book because I really could finish it It just moved way to slow for me and if I m going to read I need something that keeps my interest Maybe I ll try again but not right now.






  10. Really enjoyed this book I learned a great deal from it The things they recorded were amazing What a hard time it was for everyone.
