“Special Operations in The American Revolution” by Robert Tonsetic

“Special Operations in The American Revolution” by Robert Tonsetic tells nine stories of battles or campaigns during the American Revolutionary War. In each case, the American colonist used unconventional warfare.

Experience the battles/campaigns of the American Revolutionary War. Learn the background of the principal leaders. See American know-how demonstrated by the army, navy and marines in their operations.
My favorite chapters were one and eight. “The Capture of Fort Ticonderoga” is the title and story of chapter one. It tells of Ethan Allen’s leadership. “The Whaleboat Wars” is the title of chapter eight. It includes the story of Benjamin Tallmage.

The author is a very good story teller. He brings the events to life through the stories of the participants.

The book fills a void in the literature of the American Revolution.
Added bonuses are the book’s bibliography. It is excellent. The operational maps and photos also compliment the narrative.

Casemate Publishing published “Special Operations in The American Revolution” by Robert Tonsetic. It is a must addition to the library of every military historian as well as students of the American revolutionary War.
Dr. Tonsectic has crafted an exciting book.
