Description

This is the dramatic story of the Saratoga Campaign from the perspective of the northern British army's commanding officer, Major General John Burgoyne. Leaving Saint Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec in June, Burgoyne was confident in his ability to strike a decisive blow against the rebellion in the colonies. Instead, the stubborn rebels fought back, slowed his advance and inflicted irreplaceable losses, leading to his defeat and surrender at Saratoga on October 17, 1777, an important turning point in the American Revolution.
