Publisher Description

Here is a compelling portrait of the Revolutionary War general whose skills as an engineer and artilleryman played a key role in all of George Washington's battles including the Siege of Boston (where his use of cannons at Dorchester Heights won back the city) and the Battle of Trenton (where he was in charge of Washington's crossing of the Delaware River). Knox became an major advocate of the U.S. Constitution and served as the nation's first Secretary of War. He was co-founder of the U.S. Navy, laid the foundations for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and negotiated treaties and set policy with Native Americans.With nail-biting battle scenes, patriotism and deep understanding of his subject, Mark Puls breathes new life into the American Revolution and firmly assigns Knox to his deserved place in history.

Henry Knox

Read this when first released and again now. Amazing portrait of a bookstore owner turned invaluable revolutionary war hero. Knox was one of the few true set of shoulders Washington leaned on during the war. The book tells the Knox story in an entertaining way that makes you feel like you're there, watching all the action in person.
