Winter Soldiers

Richard M. Ketchum. Anchor Books, $13 (374pp) ISBN 978-0-385-09888-5

The American Revolution is chronicled in these companion volumes: the first describes the Revolution's early days, while the second profiles key political figures, the situation in England and later military campaigns. According to PW , `` The Winter Soldiers is a workmanlike recreation of events but unfortunately has the pedestrian tone of a high school history text.'' Photos. (Aug.)
