Autor Robert Graves
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 14 mar 2024
Sergeant Roger Lamb is in a prison camp near Boston with 3,000 other soldiers in General Johnny Burgoyne's army who surrendered at the Battle of Saratoga. Lamb is a non-commissioned officer in the British Army who served in America during the American War of Independence. But the American Congress refuses to ratify a repatriation agreement and Lamb plans an escape. He manages to make his way through General Washington's lines and rejoins Cornwallis in the Carolinas, fighting with him until Yorktown. Then he makes another remarkable escape to rejoin the British in New York. The second in a two-book series, this account is inspired by the real-life Sergeant Lamb's personal memoirs. Renowned poet, classicist, and novelist Robert Graves traces the sergeant's harrowing time in military service, providing a compelling, only barely fictionalized eyewitness account of a crucial point in American history.
