    One thought on “This Glorious Cause”

    1. A ton of research and detail went into this bookRobert Krenzel is an impressive historian and author. In fact, I only have one criticism of this book and it is this: As a narrative, I wanted this story to focus more on Gideon, himself, and focus less on troop movements. I'm hoping as this series continues, the focus will narrow in on Gideon and the central characters. That said, I stand in awe of the amount of historical detail that went into this book. I felt like I got an extensive history les [...]

    2. I believe this is the first book by this author and in some instances this shows. The tale is fine and the characters are predominately well-thought and likable, however there are times in the book that could have used a little more tweaking, particularly some of the conversations in the book. This did not make the book unreadable and towards the end I felt the author improved his skills.This one is a bit hard to classify. One one hand I would say this is a young adult book as the main character [...]

    3. Giving me a historical fiction is both a curse and blessing. One I am history buff so I am holding you to the truth (for the most part) and a blessing because it is my genre of choice. This book focuses on a young man coming of age during a time of war. The perspective of the young during troubled times have become a great way for young people to become interested and learn more about the time period being covered. It gives them something to relate to when learning about the time period. This bo [...]

    4. Good war story!Gideon Hawke's story follows the events of the early part of the Revolution, with great historical detail. Robert Krenzel has obviously done his research. The book is both informative and interesting. My only complaint would be that I like a little more character development in a novel, though we do get to know Gideon quite well.

    5. I wrote this, so naturally I think it's brilliant! I would greatly appreciate additional reviews, and especially constructive feedback. I'd be happy to discuss any questions you have on my author's page.

    6. Excellent easy read. Action flows. If you like historical fiction that follows true history this is for you. Readable by young teens as well as adults.
