Enemy Views: The American Revolutionary War as Recorded by the Hessian Participants


Foreword by John Gardner. Presents parts of the diaries, letters and regimental records from 34 individual sources from five of the six German states which rented their armies to Great Britain. The reader experiences the war in chronological order, from the Hessian departure from Germany, through the harrowing Atlantic crossing, through as many as eight years of military campaigns, and back to Germany. Told with the immediacy of first-hand experience.

Mr. Burgoyne is a recipient of the Benjamin Franklin Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Revolution Roundtable of Philadelphia.
