Reviews

"Washington Post Book World" "[A] pathbreaking examination of the treatment of American prisoners during the Revolutionary War... Burrows's book is a landmark whose significance far outweighs recent, popular biographies of the Founding Fathers. His sparkling prose, meticulous research and surprising findings recast our understanding of how the new nation was brought forth... Burrows masterfully explores a subject that had been left nearly untouched for more than two centuries.""Seattle Times" "[Burrows] offers riveting accounts of what prison life was like in New York...It is as if, more than 200 years later, fitting tribute has finally been paid."
