    The title really does say it all Colonel Ethan Allen leader of the ragtag ruffians The Green Mountain Boys got himself captured by the Brits in Canada after his surprise victory at TiconderogaWhen they discover just who they have in hand there are varying degrees of enemy gallantry and assholery in store for Allen who gets shipped off to England to be hanged Spared from that fate at the last minute he is returned to the colonies as a prisoner of warWe get a rather keen overview of his journey in enemy hands and how prisoners of different ranks were treated in various circumstances He doesn't use the phrase war crimes but his lengthy interlude at a POW camp of sorts and the skeletal appearance of a few of the inmates is a grim look as the brutality of the British brass towards the rabbley rebels Since Allen has no ualms about giving praise to the enemy where it's due I have no reason to feel that he grossly exaggerated their faultsAllen was a colorful figure with the lives of a cat and he seems to relish the two year ordeal he went through sticking it to the Brits and tories the entire time He was a model prisoner when treated properly and an eye poking irritant when he wasn't As a dutiful officer he never loses sight of his obligation to advocate for his subordinates with varying successThis account had the added interest of being written while the war was still in progress 1779 and the outcome still uncertain So while there is no doubt a measure of propaganda to stiffen the spines at home the telling of it was done with for lack of a better word verve and authenticityThe edition I read was from 1838 with footnotes elaborating on battles and other facts that would have been well known to Allen's original audience While still not all that thorough they were still a help

    I read a 1988 reprint of the 1930 version I was happy to read Ethan Allen's own account of his captivity though I wish he had been detailed in his account The hardships he endured during captivity were unimaginable This is an important historic perspective
