"Schweizer's limber figures and quick jabsof slapstick goofing give this graphic novel a deceptively light veneer, even aslife-and-death matters are unfolding. It's no easy feat to combine a high-energyhistorical adventure with a smart and nuanced look at the many shades of graythat tint notions of patriotism, loyalty, and family ties, but Schweizer doesjust that. Educators looking to add an energizing bit of spice to discussionsabout the American Revolution should take notice." - Booklist (STARRED

" Schweizer once againtells a fantastic tale of heroism in a historic setting that evokes the timeperiod, using the language of the time, which can be quite humorous (such aswhen Will asks Bess' dad if he can 'bundle' with her), and exploringcomplexities of the Revolutionary War that are seldom discussed." - School Library Journal

Thefan-favorite graphic novel series from Eisner-nominated cartoonist ChrisSchweizer returns with an all new adventure! Charles and William Crogan are twobrothers with very different perspectives on family, country, and loyalty. Nowthey find themselves on opposite sides of the brewing conflict between colonialseparatists and those still determined to serve the British Crown. Will theirbrotherhood be washed away in the bloodshed of the War or will their own tiesendure?

I enjoyed this title. In the first 4 pages, it outlined how war is not so simple and there are not always clear "good" or "bad" sides to take.

The art in this book isn't as detailed or interesting as say, Scott Pilgrim, but I appreciate the idea that history can be told through a personal story and graphic novel format. Quick read, probably best for younger teens.
