Saratoga : Saratoga is the thrilling first installment in a series that will chronicle the war that gave birth to America. It is May, 1777, and the British colonies in the new world have declared independence. The British military machine has been dispatched to stamp out this annoyance, but the gutsy American rebels have shown a stubborn resistance. Captain Jamie Skoyles is a career soldier in the British Army who has made his reputation with unswerving bravery. As he fights alongside British patriots, Skoyles can't help but distrust the cocky British leaders as costly mistakes pile up and the American rebels surge with confidence. Skoyles stays focused on furthering the commonwealth's cause in his own small corner of the war, but as the two vast armies converge on Saratoga for the first large-scale test of the conflict, British victory no longer seems certain. Skoyles soon finds his loyalties tested as he imagines life after the war, which he intends to live in the new world, no matter who governs it.
