At the heart of Brandeis historian David Hackett Fischer’s thoroughly researched and superbly written chronicle is a landmark military victory: George Washington’s 1776 Delaware River crossing to defeat the Hessian in Trenton and the British in Princeton. Fischer shows that Washington’s battlefield tactics came from the general’s sense of accountability to America’s citizens.
