"The background for this novel of the American Revolution is Boston, New York, Paris, Kentucky, and South Carolina. The story is told by Oliver Wiswell, New Englander, who is loyal to the mother country. 'The present novel, which is history for all its fictional form, will startle every man, woman and child who has been taught to believe that the American Revolution was fought and won by bands of angels. It is, in short, the Revolution as seen by men whom the Revolutionary fathers called Tories and who called themselves Loyalists. In it all the bitterness of a horrible civil war is powerfully and dramatically brought back to live.'" N Y Times.
