Praise for Saratoga

"This is a very enlightening book . . . and is WOW!+ rated."

- The Lone Star Book Review, October 2010

"An excellent account of a crucial campaign. Luzader provides a wealth of detail on the impact of tactics, strategy, geography, logistics, personalities, and politics on the operations of the armies. For the casual reader or an expert on the war, this work offers a useful and enjoyable account of the entire campaign, from its roots in the abortive American invasion of Canada in 1775 through the aftermath of the surrender of the British army."

- Journal of Military History, Vol. 73, November 2009

" . . . an excellent account of a crucial campaign."

- Journal of Military History

"This is a well-written, deeply researched and very knowledgeable book with great insight on the subject that is both easy to read and quite interesting (dare I say, at times even fascinating). I highly recommend this inclusive study of the military and political history of the multifaceted story of one of the great "turning points of the American Revolution"."

- Lt. Col. Peter L. Ford, RWFA (ret'd), Member of The America Revolutionary War Roundtable of NY

"A thorough and riveting account of Burgoyne’s undoing in 1777. John Luzader knows the players, the terrain, and the intricacies of this critical Revolutionary War episode better than anyone, and his Saratoga will be the standard treatment for a long, long time."

- Jerome A. Greene, author of The Guns of Independence: The Siege of Yorktown, 1781

"During my years with the National Park Service, John Luzader had no peer among the Service’s research historians as the authority on the American Revolution. His mastery of the critical Battle of Saratoga stood forth as an extraordinary achievement, and he devoted years to working out all the vital details from original sources. That his work at last appears in print, accompanied by an array of excellent maps and supporting documents, is not only an unsurpassed contribution to understanding a pivotal event in American history, but a well-deserved tribute to a splendid scholar."

- Robert Utley,
bestselling author and former Chief Historian of the National Park Service
