Sergeant Lamb's America
This novel takes place in the early years of the American Revolution and is based on the adventures of one Sergeant Lamb, a Dublin man in the services of His Majesty's army. It begins with Lamb's early days in Dublin and ends with his arrival in Boston as a member of the regiment taken prisoner after Burgoyne's surrender at Saratoga. It includes a foreword by the author in which Graves, as is his custom, describes what experience or event led to his writing the novel.
