Comments: "Burgoyne defends his actions in the campaign that led to the disaster at Saratoga. He proves in this work that his army was half the size he had demanded, and was badly provided for. The work is one of the best sources on the campaign." Streeter Sale II, 794. Lande 69. Howes B- 968. Sabin 9255.Edition: First Edition
