    " Mostly liked it because I am familiar with all the places mentioned in the book. Not a bad book, but I am not sure if I would have liked it as much if I didn't live in the area. "

    " Historical fiction (or maybe not so much fiction) about George Washington's crossing of the Delaware. Howard Fast (of Spartacus fame), an (ex-?)communist paints ole George in a surprisingly reverent light. "

    " Compelling read and makes the characters human rather than mythic. "

About the Author

Howard Fast (1914–2003) was one of the most prolific American writers of the twentieth century. He was a bestselling author of more than eighty works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and screenplays. The son of immigrants, he grew up in New York City and published his first novel upon finishing high school in 1933. In 1950, his refusal to provide the United States Congress with a list of possible Communist associates earned him a three-month prison sentence. During his incarceration, he wrote one of his best-known novels, Spartacus. Throughout his long career, he matched his commitment to championing social justice in his writing with a deft, lively storytelling style.
