Reviews

"Steven Siry's exploration of the lives, thoughts, and deaths of the ten rebel generals killed as a result of combat during the American Revolution is innovative military history. While the ten generals were a diverse lot, Siry's skillful analysis demonstrates that they were united by impressive physical courage and an abiding commitment to creating a free republican nation. Liberty's Fallen Generals is a most welcome addition to the expanding literature on the nature and meaning of the American Revolution."--John K. Alexander, author of Samuel Adams: The Life of an American Revolutionary--John K. Alexander
"Liberty's Fallen Generals is a riveting book about the lives--and deaths--of ten generals during the Revolutionary War. Some of these officers were citizen-soldiers who took up arms in the struggle to win American independence, and some are no longer well known. Steven Siry has crafted a fine book that will fascinate and enlighten all who are interested in the War of Independence."--John Ferling, author of Almost a Miracle: The American Victory in the War of Independence and Independence: The Struggle to Set America Free--John Ferling
"With the rank-and-file soldier taking center stage in the New Military History for the past forty years, Steven Siry's Liberty's Fallen Generals is a refreshing reminder that top military commanders also made the ultimate sacrifice in winning America's independence. In a fast-paced, action-packed narrative that puts the reader in the thick of the most important battles of the American Revolution, Siry shows that the military generals of the age, far from being rear-echelon commanders like their modern-day counterparts, courageously fought and died alongside the troops they led into battle. The general reader will find Liberty's Fallen Generals both entertaining and inspiring, while historians who teach the War of Independence will find it an ideal addition to their student's required reading list."--Keith Krawczynski, professor of history, Auburn University at Montgomery; author of William Henry Drayton: South Carolina Revolutionary Patriot; and editor of History in Dispute--Keith Krawczynski
