Description

Beat the Last Drum: The Siege of Yorktown New York Times bestselling historian Thomas Fleming creates a dramatic, moving depiction of the Siege of Yorktown - the days in October 1781 that ended the American Revolution and changed the world.

Along with French General Jean-Baptiste Rochambeau, George Washington made an astonishing march through New Jersey and trapped British General Charles Cornwallis and his forces in Yorktown, Virginia, where they unleashed a tremendous artillery assault, with the support of the French navy. But victory was never certain, and both sides made a series of bold attacks and counterattacks, with Washington the unlikely winner.
