Historians often point to The Battle of Saratoga as the most crucial and pivotal fight in America's history. It marked the first victory following a string of defeats in 1776, and awakened the French, who eventually assisted the patriot cause.
The outcome, and history's destiny was uniquely affected by last minute insubordination at the very top. Had the battle ended under the leadership of the two assigned commanders, we might be watching a soccer game at the Super Bowl, after standing to sing God Save the Queen! An important book and a great read. 233 pages. Paperback
