The Revolutionary War battles of Trenton and Princeton turned the tide for the colonies and sealed George Washington’s fate as an American hero. Since August 1776, British forces under General William Howe had been driving the Continental Army south out of New York. On November 16 the British overran Fort Washington in Manhattan, taking 2,000 Americans prisoner. It included two crucial battles, fought eighteen days apart, and was a decisive victory for the Continental Army and a crucial turning point in the Revolutionary.

The Day is Ours! is a dramatic account of two battles that turned the tide of the American Revolution. In this distinguished, highly readable, and richly detailed narrative history, William M. Dwyer reveals as vivid a picture as we are likely to see of a critical period in the American Revolution. He lets the participants--from American, British, and Hessian soldiers to myriad fearful and ambivalent citizens--tell the story in their own words. "Telling the story from the perspective, and often the words, of men in the ranks, Dwyer has written a dramatic account of this turning point in the American Revolution." --James M. McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom "[Dwyer] has cast his net wide, taking advantage of newly found or long-obscure accounts published during the celebration of the Revolution's bicentennial. We learn exactly how it was in that momentous time, from letters, diaries and recollections of officers and men on both sides and civilians caught in the middle." --New York Times Book Review "Dwyer has put together a wonderful, lively account that reflects a reporter's respect for quotes from eyewitnesses . . . He presents the facts and lets history speak for itself. The result is enthralling." --The Philadelphia Inquirer "The courage of the common soldier who stayed and fought when the sunshine patriots had all gone home is a story that deserves to be told--and Mr. Dwyer has told it well." --The Wall Street Journal

This is my kind of history. The book is largely first hand accounts of the Battles of Trenton and Princeton from diaries written by persons who were there. This is a book that I found so interesting I didn't want to do anything else until I had finished it. It allowed me to visualize the events as they happened and gain a feel for what it must have been like to be there. I especially liked the author's detailed presentation of how despondent the nation was following the battle losses during the last months of 1776 and how the victories at Trenton and Princeton renewed support and saved the revolution. I also gained an appreciation for the challenges faced by persons who either participated or were affected by the battles. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn more about these battles and life during the American Revolution.

This is the best book on the 1776-1777 campaign after the NYC battles that I have read, The research is excellent and it contains all of the detail that other books usually neglect. Well written, very interesting throughout.

I got this because of my families genealogy. My cousin was reading this book and told me about our 5th great grandparents. I bought the book (great seller by the way) and the story was captivating. I am not really a history buff, or an avid reader like my other family. I am a slow reader, but this book is easy to read and keeps you wanting more.

Awesome book! Hearing details of the battles first hand is amazing. The author blends his own narrative info along with the journal entries beautifully. I live 5 minutes from the Princeton Battlefield and walk my dog there all the time. This book has really made history come alive for me.

"The Day Is Ours" using actual historical letters, diaries, etc. is a real eye-opener to how close our "revolution" came to failing. The chance turn of the weather one evening, allowing Washington's army to escape certain doom, the heroism of a single soldier, turning the tide of battle come to life in this book. Well written, well worth your time to read.

This book was a great inspiration to me when I started researching and writing books on the Rev War. The author's writing style is very fluid, and the end notes were also very useful. Excellent work. One of the best on the 1776 campaign. - Gregory Edgar
