In the fifth year of the War of Independence, while the Americans focused on the British thrust against the Carolinas, the Canadian Department waged a decisive campaign against the northern frontier of New York. Their primary target was the Mohawk River region, known to be the "grainbowl" that fed Washington’s armies. The Burning of the Valleys details the actions of both sides in this exciting and incredibly effective British campaign.

General Frederick Haldimand of Canada possessed a potent force, formed by the deadly alliance of toughened, embittered Tories, who had abandoned their families and farms in New York and Pennsylvania to join the King’s Provincial regiments in Canada, and the enraged Six Nations Iroquois, whose towns and farmlands had been utterly devastated by Continentals in 1779. The Governor augmented this highly motivated force with British and German regulars and Canadian Iroquois.

Excellent book with very thorough research on the Revolutionary War. The author gives a solid review of events leading up to, during and following the raids in the Mohawk and Hudson Valleys of New York. A "must read" book for anyone interested in learning more about the history of New York and everyday life of the courageous settlers who lived there in the 17th and 18th centuries. As a history buff I highly recommend this book if you want to learn more about our country's history.

Excellent Book on the Mohawk Valley Campaign...great information on key engagements and troop types and numbers. Mr. Watt's constant pro-loyalist feelings however seem to pop up throughout the book giving justification to their cause. I liked it anyway!

Got this for my dad as a birthday present, turns out his website was one of the sources for it! Pretty pleased that he enjoyed the book and that it was historically accurate.

While I have not finished it yet, the book is, as expected, proving to be an excellant resource for learning this part of American history. It is extremely well researched and detailed, and the author lays it out in a logical format that provides background and context for the stories it tells. Good buy.

This is a must have book for an American Revolutionary War reenactor. That is, if you are on the side of the Crown. Especailly if you are portraying a Loyalist/Tory. God Save King George III!

A Fantastic work and a pleasure to read the History of a forgotten area of history, the American Revolution as it happened in New York state. Very well documented, good selection of paintings, modern photographs and maps of the region. The indices are unquestionably the most complete that I have ever seen.
I highly reccommend this book to anyone who is interested in the late 18 th Century and the American Revolution.
