DESCRIPTION:
"Carl Berger relates the fascinating story of the propaganda and subversion activities of both factions during the American Revolutionary War. The writings of the period, the archives and literature, are filled with intriguing references to "secret arts and machinations," some relating to incidents familiar to students of American history, others touching on events long since forgotten. This book brings these known and little-known events into perspective, examining in a single, authoritative narrative their role and importance."
