First Edition. Octavo, red cloth, gilt letters, 525 pp. B & w illus. Very Good+ with former owner stamp and marks to endpapers from removed tape, in a Very Good+ dust jacket with light fading to spine. Thomas Fleming writes, We have celebrated the heroic side of 1776 for a long time. Perhaps after two hundred years we are ready to look steadily at the dark side of the story as well. Perhaps by facing it, absorbing it, contemporary and future Americans will be spared the paroxysms of shock and dismay, the cries of despair and predictions of imminent doom which emanate from so many mouths whenever some of these negative traits appear among our contemporary politicians or soldiers or plain citizens. Instead of these seizures of infantile emotion, perhaps we can begin to accept such failings as part of our limited human natures and learn from the mistakes, without losing hope or faith in the future.'
