I just finished reading Jeff Shaara's "The Glorious Cause", a stylized historical novel of the American Revolution. This novel covers the entire gamut of the Revolution, from the battles around New York City, at the darkest days of the war, to Paris, where Ben Franklin worked tirelessly to achieve aid and recognition for our new country, to the final moments at Yorktown. I've read other treatments of the war over the years, but I've never read anything that brought to life all the legendary figures of the Revolution, and did such a tremedous job of painting the broad sweep of the war, in all of it's shame and glory. For anyone interested in a damn good read, this is a great book. Jeff Shaara is the son of the author of the "Killer Angels, the book that inspired the terrific TV series "Gettysburg", and who also wrote "Rise to Rebellion", the story of the beginning of American independence.

Because this will never even get seen buried way down in the "Real Military Discussions" category, I'm moving this to the Ready Room.
