E personality How would they far against the best army and navy in the worldThe life and times of the famous presented in this book are uplifting and inspiring as are the stories of lesser luminaries During a perilous winter battle near uebec one young soldier sat down on the trail and died His wife had marched with him she picked up his musket and kept going A 13 year old boy kept a diary as he accompanied his father on a boat during the battle at Lake Champlain A fascinating and timely story involved the highly contagious small pox virus which was a scourge of the army camp Rumors persisted that the British had sent infected persons into the Continental Army to decimate it And there were differing views about the use of inoculationsA memorable part of the book was when a copy of the Declaration of Independence arrived at Fort Ticonderoga and was read to the troops at the Sabbath service The words were stunning to people raised in a monarchy Like the author I salute and give

review Thank you NetGalley St Martins Publishing and the author for the opportunity to read an Advance Readers Copy of this bookFor those who do not know the United States were once colonies of Great Britain From 1775 to 1783 they fought a war for independence that Protecting the Colton Bride Coltons Cowboy Code ended after few military peaks and many valleys The American Revolution is one my favorite subjects both in fiction and nonfiction VALCOUR by author JACK KELLY takes a nonfiction look at one aspect of that warDuring the first year of militaryngagements the colonies had some ups and downs They included a siege of British occupying forces in Boston Battle of Bunker Hill Look-Alike Lawman (Texas Twins, eventually forcing the Redcoats to abandon Boston a successful raid on Fort Ticonderoga in upstate New York by Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys and a disastrous winter attempt to seize uebec City in Canada Benedict Arnold was one of the men leading the Canadian campaign In America his name is synonymous with treason for his attempt to turn over an important fort West Point New York mid Hudson River Valley to the British later during the war Mr Kelly s purpose of this book is to help understand Arnold not as traitor but as a brilliant military leader mistreated by the Continental Congress and by some of his superior officers jealous of his successesArnold took charge of the retreat from uebec City in the latter months of a cold winter His troops were suffering from smallpox and dysentery He led them south into Lake Champlain that lies between the states of Vermont and New York He took them to Fort Ticonderoga where other leaders had been assembling a fleet of small naval ships to stop the British before they could divide the New England colonies from the rest of the colonies The British had been putting together a larger naval force at the northnd of Lake Champlain The two forces made contact in October 1776 near Valcour Island A Daylong Sea Battle daylong sea battle On paper the British won The American fleet snuck away during the night However it had made the British commander realize that this was not going to be an asy campaignBenedict Arnold was leader in charge of the rebel forces He succeeded in delaying the British from moving south to Fort Ticonderoga until 1777 In that year at nearby Saratoga New York American forces defeated a British Army further postponing a British march to New York City and Albany The Battle of Saratoga directly led to the French decision to come to the aid of the American coloniesThis book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for readers of military campaigns and the *American RevolutionGO BUY READ * RevolutionGO BUY READ wasn t until I visited Montreal that I learned that the United Colonies had attempted to invade Canada during the Revolutionary War It didn t nd well This book starts with the retreat To be honest I would have preferred a little background before the story moves to the battle of Lake Champlain I would have also really appreciated a map at the front of the book so I could have gotten my bearings as to where various locales were But these issues aside this is a well researched ducational book I d heard of all the big names in this story Schuyler Arnold and Gates Kelly does a great job of fleshing out these names and making them come to life Kelly shows us over and over that the British were only one of the problems the Colonists dealt with And that often the fights between the military leaders were the biggest issues And when he finally gets to the actual battle I was ducking and weaving trying to scape the grapeshot and cannon balls it was that realistic The book also lays the groundwork for why Arnold finally betrays his country And shows us how much good he initially did to help the cause I really Snowy River Man enjoyed Kelly s previous book The Edge of Anarchy He has the ability to make nonfiction read like fiction I will continue to read anything he writes My thanks to netgalley and St Martin s Press for an advance copy of this book.

Jack Kelly has written a thoroughly The Carpenters Wife and Heart of Stone enjoying andxciting book about a conflict that isn t well known or Celtic Fire (Rogue Angel, even really talked about very few knew about a British attack from Canada or that there was a small naval battle played out on Lake Champlain I certainly knew very little about it I had heard that it happened and that was about it Jack Kelly gave me so much new information in a veryntertaining fashion I was instantly drawn in and couldn t wait to read the next page His descriptions are phenomenal and I really The Family Plan enjoyed learning about Benedict Arnold and his frankly brilliant strategy It doesn t feel like a history book which is a good thing This book is great for anyone who is interested in history the American revolution Benedict Arnold military history and naval battles If you have a hard time reading historical books I would still suggest you give this a try it s so action packed and well written you would think you re reading historical fiction5 Stars well done Mr Kelly Excellent Publish or Perish history ofarly northern campaigns in the War for Independence in North America highlighting the Generals and battles involved culminating in the Battle of Valcour It is finely detailed and obviously meticulously researched but a bit above my pay grade despite having been involved in the Northwest Territory Alliance re A Family Practice enacting for a number of years I highly recommend it for readers of military campaigns and the American RevolutionI reuested and received a freebook copy from St Martin s Press via NetGalley Thank you This book is about the failed attempt to invade Canada A Doctor in Her Stocking (From Here to Maternity early in the days of the Revolutionary War and the subseuent battle on Lake Champlain and Fort Ticonderoga The key players are Benedict Arnold Philip Schuyler and Horatio Gates and their roles in the success of the battle The author points out that Arnold did much good for the Revolution before turning traitor Something that is often overlooked in history I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the Revolutionary WarI received a free Kindle copy of this book courtesy of Net Galley and the publisher with the understanding that I would post a review on Net Galley Goodreads and my nonfiction book review blog I also posted it to my Facebook page I appreciate the fact that St Martin s Press gave me an uncorrected galley proof of the book It is with a heavy heart that I can not recommend it to anyone at this time This book reads like fiction which can be a good thing when dealing with history The research was poorly done and facts were misrepresented He failed to mention the Huron Irouois name was Kanata First of all Canada was not called Canada until 1791 Canadaca 2020 fifteen years after thevents that occurred in the military campaign being discussed Canada was not recognized as a country until 1867 and it was

PUBLISHER WILL TAKE MY CRITICAL OPINIONS SERIOUSLY the publisher will take my critical opinions seriously fix the flaws Once the flaws are addressed appropriately I would have no problem recommending the bookReferencesBlake E August 29 2018 Canada s Long Gradual Road to Independence Retrieved from URL Canadaca July 8 2020 Origin of the Name Canada Retrieved from URL CBCca 2021 How Did Canada Become a Country Retrieved from URL I received an advance reading copy arc of this book from NetGalleycom in return for a fair review The Battle of Valcour Island took place in October of 1776 and was a defining moment in the Revolutionary War To be honest I had never heard of it until now Of course we all studied what happened at Lexington and Concord Bunker Hill or Breed s Hill and maybe the Siege of Boston but a little known island on Lake Champlain went unnoticed Author Jack Kelly has done a magnificent job bringing to life this pivotal battle and the men who fought it Unlike the usual textbook style I have come to For Better and Worse expect when reading about the Revolutionary War Kelly s vivid prose allows you to smell the gunpowder see the smoke and feel the gut wrenching fear these soldiersxperienced He louently describes the battered ships the rough waters and the men s stubborn persistence as cannonballs and bullets whizzed past them uotes taken from their diaries and letters tells first hand what really happened as these men struggled not only to BEST THE BRITISH BUT TO SURVIVE the British but to survive assault Led by Benedict Arnold a charismatic leader who showed no fear in the midst of the action these brave men with little training fought side by side in unfamiliar territory relying on Arnold to get them through Though methods may have changed over the years war is still war There were horrific deaths and gruesome casualties that survivors witnessed and then lived with for the rest of their lives In that respect these Colonial soldiers were no different than today s service men and women We certainly owe them a huge debt of gratitude One last thing Benedict Arnold is best known for his traitorous turn but before his monumental decision to join the British he was a trusted and respected officer serving under George Washington The Battle of Valcour Island proved his abilities to act under pressure and at the time he was hailed a hero. The wild and suspenseful story of one of the most crucial and least known campaigns of the Revolutionary War when America’s scrappy navy took on the full might of Britain’s sea powerDuring the summer of 1776 a British incursion from Canada loomed In response citizen soldiers of the newly independent nation mounted a heroic defense Patriots constructed a small fleet of gunboats on Lake Champlain Sadly his legacy is flawed I highly recommend this book to history lovers Revolutionary War nthusiasts and anyone who likes action Personally I look forward to work from Jack Kelly Excellent read 3 12 stars This is a well researched work that presents the desperate days and weeks in 1776 when a dispirited beaten and sick US force hastily retreated from their optimistic foray into Canada and had to regain cohesion health skill and build a fleet in a short period of time to stop the superior fleet numbers and skill of the British navy prepared to foray down Lake Champlain and onto New York City where they could have crushed the rebellion in its Rescuing the Texans Heart early stages as well as the actual battle itself that many people don t know about I didn t The battle itself doesn t start until about 50% into the book this does allow a thorough picture of the desperate position the people were in and the great accomplishment they were able to achieve It also allows a portrait of some of the average people who were riskingverything on the possibility of a better future and a new country The focus though is on three people Horatio Gates who transformed the beaten sick and discouraged armythey became a respectable fighting force Philip Schuyler yes the father of Eliza who married Alexander Hamilton who oversaw the construction of a fleet of war vessels in the wilderness and Benedict Arnold whose actions on Lake Champlain in the summer of 1776 helped save the cause of liberty Well known as a traitor it is very interesting to see Benedict Arnold as a charismatic and daring leader whose bold behavior contributed to saving the day and stopped the British fleet from proceeding down to New York City His skill and achievements are often overlooked in light of his later behavior But this tells the story of the foundation of his later actions Kelly s work is not a dry recitation of facts The tension is palpable in the writing and he gives a good description of the conditions and chaos of the actual naval battle He indulges a bit in atmospheric descriptions that I would Wrangled (Whitehorse, MT: Chisholm Cattle Co., expect in a historical fiction story but it makes for good reading Informative and interesting Good jobThanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in return for an honest review I received an uncorrected proof of Valcour via NetGalley and I thank St Martins for asking me to read it It was a shame for me to admit when I first started this work that I had studied little of the actual details of the Battle of Valcour Island After reading this book I m happy to say that deficiency has started to be addressed The Battle of Valcour Island in October 1776 was a campaign led by Generals Gates Arnold and Schuyler to blunt a potential British invasion from the north via Lake Champlain an invasion that would have allowed British forces to reach the Hudson River and link up with troops in New York Though the battle was a victory for the British American troops did slow down British troopsnough to force them to winter in Canada providing America a needed respite to regroup Jack Kelly does an xcellent job of shifting back and forth between the two sides providing the reader a good overview of thoughts of both the Americans and the British The best part of the book though is the insight provided into those in charge I ve never been a fan of Gates and this book wasn t going to change that but I now have respect for him and the skills that he brought to the American war #effort The author also provides instructional background on Arnold as well speculating on #The author also provides instructional background on Arnold as well speculating on vents that could have nudged him toward the traitorous course he finally took I also have to give the Kelly profs on his research For me the hardest part when I start a new historical nonfiction book is that authors often reference tangential Un hros pour Rayne (Delta Force Heroes t. 1) events to set the stage for the rest of the work As someone who reads history for fun I usually have some idea of what s being mentioned However if I m unsure on anything I will immediately look it up to guarantee I understand what the author is saying Part of this isducational for me However on some level it may be a bit arrogant in that I m checking the author s research to make sure I can trust it arrogant in that I m checking the author s research to make sure I can trust it found nothing to give me caution in this book s first chapters and that allowed me to truly njoy it as a lover of history should Fireworks and cheers for a red white and blue star spangled book that brings the Revolutionary War to life More like a thriller than a non
