About The Book
“Samuel Smith’s books on Trenton and Princeton are highly accurate monographs, based on careful research in American primary materials and excellent use of Hessian transcripts… For readers who want to know how the battles actually happened, the books are valuable for their careful construction of events. The inquiry is tightly centered on questions of descriptive fact. Interpretative statements are carefully balanced, and judgments are mature and restrained.” — David Hackett Fisher in Washington’s Crossing
Often cited as the turning point of the American Revolution, the battles of Trenton and Princeton were instead the first victories by George Washington’s demoralized troops over the Hessians and British, respectively. Highlighted by Washington’s brilliant Delaware River crossing, the victories reenergized the American forces and allowed both Continental officers and soldiers to believe that they could defeat a much more experienced enemy and gain independence from Great Britain. Long recognized by specialists as the definitive studies of these two key fascinating battles and originally published in the early 1960s in separate oversized volumes, they are presented here together in hardback facsimile.
