I thought that this book gave a super description of the battles in the southern states. The Battle of Yorktown was just icing on the cake.

Mr. Ketchum gives an excellent account of the campaigns in the southern states and then he carries through with the events leading to the Battle at Yorktown and the succeeding two years after Cornwallis’s surrender. Ketchum, also gives the reader an analysis of why events developed as they did. The author’s writing style is terrific. The battles and the events flow very well from one chapter to the next. I was able to follow the story, and it kept my interest throughout the book. The one fault I did find was that the book could have used a few more descriptive maps. I found myself doing numerous rereads just so I could figure out where I was located in any one particular state.
Overall, the book gave me an excellent well-rounded education on the campaign to and including Yorktown.
