Interview with Saratoga author

A Military History of the Decisive Campaign of the American RevolutionEarlier I posted about an upcoming Saratoga study by John Luzader, due out soon from Savas Beatie.  While visiting the publisher’s website, I just ran across an interview with Luzader, which is well worth reading.  He speaks favorably of both Horatio Gates and Benjamin Lincoln, two generals that haven’t gotten much favorable press. 

This book looks to be both a definitive account of the campaign and a provocative reassessment of some well-worn assumptions about the Revolutionary War.  I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy.
