Alex Boyles offers a capable narration of this look at the American Revolution. It's easy to think that the British surrender at Yorktown marked the end of the revolution, but General George Washington knew otherwise, and it was his task to hold the army together until a peace treaty was confirmed. Idle, unpaid officers posed a threat to the fledgling government. This audiobook recounts those threats and the efforts to finance the war effort. Boyles's voice is pleasant and even, and carries the story along. But he can't overcome the author's detailed text, which makes listening challenging at times. Boyles enlivens the narration with sudden changes in tone, pitch, or volume, especially when translating Colonial phrasing into more modern idioms.
