A Revolutionary War action-thriller filled with spies and heroes, targeted to boys and girls 8-12. In this second book in the American Revolutionary War Adventure series, twins Ambrose and John Clark find themselves volunteering for another mission to help the newly forming United States of America. Inspired by their success in delivering a secret message to General George Washington himself, the boys step up to help transport much-needed gunpowder to the patriots and end up in an even more dangerous situation, manning one of the first submarines and then, later, attempting a prison break to rescue their older brother, Berty
Written by Robert Skead with the help of his father, the main character is based on their ancestor who fought in the American Revolution as part of the Connecticut militia. Though historical fiction, the events that occurred with George Washington in New Jersey regarding the war effort are true.
While I was not the intended audience for this book, I found this read a fun learning experience. I will be adding this book to my school year on the Revolutionary war topic. This exciting adventure story about a set of twins also explores the early history of submarines as far back as the Revolutionary war. There is plenty of historical info included in this book for you to explore further from a school teacher, perspective. These boys are working with their father and older brother and there is much respect demonstrated throughout the book.
