A book detailing Mr. Arnold's invasion to take Quebec and the aftermath.
Looks good.

Good find! I haven't found a whole lot written on this campaign. I'll add it to my Wish List.

Is it just me or is "In the Company of Heroes" one of the most overused titles and subtitles of books?

Here's one more book I have on this topic. It is small, but still valuable to have.

Through a Howling Wilderness: Benedict Arnold's March to Quebec, 1775: Thomas A. Desjardin: 9780312339050: Amazon.com: Books

I really haven't noticed that phrase, but I have seen others that
seemed to get a lot of usage. I suppose when writing about the American
Revolution, there's only so many ways to say it in a catchy title.

It's pretty common among military themed books especially, for obvious reasons. I wonder if there is a guy out there somewhere that just sits around all day and comes up with catchy bylines.

I have read about this campaign before only from the Canadian perspective. It is considered a great Canadian victory (even though Canada was not yet a nation).

I can see it now.
Also, some books have similar names, for example.
"Empire of Liberty: The Statecraft of Thomas Jefferson" by Tucker
"Empire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic, 1789-1815" by Wood

I recently finished Benedict Arnold: Patriot and traitor, it had a lot of info on the Canadian mission. He was an amazing man.
