Riassunto: John Stark served with the famous Rogers? Rangers during the French and Indian War, where he honed the leadership skills that placed him among the most successful military commanders of that conflict, and the Revolutionary War. His extraordinary performance at Bunker Hill, the siege of Boston, the Battles of Trenton, Bennington, and Saratoga, and as commander of the Northern Department has gone relatively unheralded. He was a legendary hero, a true Cincinnatus, who embodies the values that made our country great. He was a frugal, independent, and cantankerous New England Yankee. His legacy of valor for a cause greater than self are a tribute that time cannot diminish. Comments and Reviews of New Hampshire's General John Stark Book Clifton La Bree, a forester by profession, has written a biography that?incorporates fascinating and original documents dealing with the times before and after the Battle of Bennington. He can convey a memorable mood or set the scene, for example, the terror and dread among the population of the Champlain Valley when Burgoyne?s army tramped southward in the spring and summer of 1777. Tyler Resch, Librarian, Bennington Museum. I was totally interested. The book (New Hampshire?s General John Stark)filled in a lot of gaps the major history books do not cover. I love what you wrote about Benedict Arnold too?I got interested in John Stark when I went to a museum in NH. I?m one of the few non-NH people who know where the motto, Live Free or Die, comes from. June Carter, English professor at the University of Maine. As I have noted, La Bree?s dissertation of our nation?s beloved son [John Stark]is as timeless as it is valuable. Matt Funk, The Linnean Society of London. I purchased your book on Gen. John Stark in 2008 (autographed) and loved it. It was refreshing to be able to read about the past and combine it with New Hampshire. I wish there were more books out there like yours. John Williams Thanks so much for the book. Very interesting, Great job, Lovely book! I?ll treasure it! Lorraine Barney
L'autore: About Clifton La Bree A few biographical notes may help you to understand my body of work, for all writings are biographical in nature. I was born in 1933 in the small rural town of Monson, Maine, located in the north Maine woods. There, I learned to respect and admire the independent, self-reliant, and hard-working people that make up the vast majority of these United States. Shortly after World War II started, we moved to York, Maine, close to where my father took a job at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. I remember those long years of suffering and uncertainty that accompanied the war with exacting clarity. We moved to Wells, Maine, in 1945 where I graduated from Wells High School in 1951. I attended Boston University for one year and transferred to the University of New Hampshire, graduating with a degree in forestry in 1955. I've labored in the profession for all of my adult life and enjoyed every moment. The forest has always been a sanctuary for my soul ? a place where I could sort out and resolve problems. It has been, and remains today, a spiritual experience.
