Synopsis

Fast’s gripping account of George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River and the Battle of Trenton, which changed the course of the American Revolution

Immortalized on canvas by Emanuel Leutze, Washington’s journey across the Delaware River is one of the most celebrated moments in American history. But the true story of the crossing, and of what came after, is often lost in the legend. In The Crossing, Fast writes with striking historical detail and relentless narrative drive about Washington’s surprise attack, leading the Continental Army to victory against the 1,000 Hessian mercenaries in Trenton, New Jersey—a momentous occasion in American history.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.
