Wow this is going to be my first battle.
Grab yourself a gun and get going we can't let the Hessians get there first.
These trees will be the perfect cover for an ambush.
I´ve been hit
Corporal you said we would ambush them from the trees.
After the battle Jonathan got captured by three hessians they took Jonathan to a little farm house. At the house Jonathan found a little boy whose parents had been killed. Jonathan waited till night and escaped with the boy he then found the corporal and his men they ambushed the Hessians. Then Jonathan finally returned home to his family.
I thought this was a good book because it told you how truly terrifying war is. The main character Jonathan really wanted to go to war but once he got to battle it was nothing he expected. almost immediately one of his fathers best friends was killed. After that Jonathan was captured by the Hessians but he was able to escape and return to his family. I thought it was a good book.
