Review: The Winter at Valley Forge: Survival and Victory by James E. Knight (Adventures in Colonial America Series)
Review: With clear prose, this story, as told from the viewpoint of a solider, is an excellent introduction to the hardships faced by the American army during the winter at Valley Forge. Although not graphic, it doesn't gloss over how things really wear. The solider talks of starvation, of frozen feet and blood in the snow, of losing friends and fellow soldiers, of despair and desperation. Excellent for use in introducing kids to this important historical event in American history.
