|Description:||Join us as we discuss John Ferling's Almost a Miracle: The American Victory in the War of Independence.
Award-winning historian John Ferling transports readers to the grim realities of the Revolutionary War, capturing an eight-year conflict filled with heroism, suffering, cowardice, betrayal, and fierce dedication.
Ferling offers an illuminating portrait of America's triumph and vivid descriptions of all the major engagements, from the first shots fired on Lexington Green to the surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown.
The book paints sharp-eyed portraits of the key figures in the war, including General Washington and other American officers and civilian leaders and examines the many faceless men who soldiered, often for years on end, braving untold dangers and enduring abounding miseries, and explains why they served and sacrificed.
