Description
"More War" by William P. Robertson contains nine intense battle stories from the American Revolution and the War of 1812. His accounts are told from the point of view of the heroes and villains who participated in these conflicts. First, there's the infamous Queen Esther who bashed in the brains of fourteen Yankee captives during the Wyoming Valley Massacre. The suffering of George Washington's Patriots is also described. Shoeless, they left bloody footprints in the snow while fighting the frigid Battle of Trenton. Heroes from the 1812 War include Oliver Hazard Perry. He boarded a rowboat and switched vessels after his flagship got blasted in the Battle of Lake Erie. And, of course, there's Andrew Jackson, "Old Hickory," who proved his toughness at New Orleans by beating the British and dysentery, too. Chief Tecumseh was a hero of another kind. He died in battle rather than see his tribal lands be stolen by the Yankee invaders.
About the author
William P. Robertson was born in 1950 in Bradford, Pennsylvania. While attending Lincoln Elementary School, he devoured any book he could find about colonial America. He especially loved reading the biographies of Daniel Boone, Dan Morgan, and George Washington. Later he became fascinated with historical fiction and read many books by Kenneth Roberts, including NORTHWEST PASSAGE. The author's love of the 1700s led him to write three Alleghenies novels about French and Indian War battles that occurred in Northwestern Pennsylvania. All told, Robertson has penned over fifty books that he hopes will preserve his region's heritage.
