Spies of the Revolution. com User, January 21, 2004. Thomas Fleming captures the duplicity and destructive nature of espionage with this novel of spies during the American Revolution. By utilizing an incredible grasp of the time period, Fleming creates a very plausible scenario, a plot to kidnap George Washington.

I suppose it is inevitable for an author’s feelings to work their way into his craft, and this book is no exception.

Thomas Flemings's Revolutionary War masterpiece, Dreams of Glory, takes place in the bitter winter of 1780 in the fifth year of the American War for Independence. The British conspire to kidnap Washington and bring the war to an end in one bold and daring raid. A tide of espionage ebbs and flows between the opposing armies.

It was the fourth day of his interrogation. Then Alexander Hamilton took. Then Alexander Hamilton took charge of the verbal gauntlet, continuing it until midnight. For a moment Stallworth felt a tremor of remorse. It disturbed him, out of all proportion to its intensity. He had never felt a trace of such an emotion with other prisoners.

Having read a number of the late Thomas Fleming’s history books, I purchased this book solely on the strength of his name, and didn’t have a clue that this was historical fiction until I began reading. Although I was not looking for a novel, Mr. Fleming’s talent for digging through the layers of history and finding items of interest soon had me caught up in what I first thought was based on fantasy. The author’s Afterward, however, cleared up any thoughts that the story wasn’t based upon fact.

“Dreams of Glory” is based upon a 1780 British plot to capture General Washington and swiftly end the Revolutionary War. Many of the characters lived during this period in history, and the book has been researched and built on the letters, diaries, and other written items that have survived through the years.

I suppose it is inevitable for an author’s feelings to work their way into his craft, and this book is no exception. In these instances, it seemed that only the extreme ends of the issues were represented, marking a good/evil territory and reducing some of the characters to one-dimensional status. Fortunately, Mr. Fleming’s excellent writing style glosses over this area, and the plot reads as well as any modern-day thriller. I couldn’t help but get caught up in the lives of people forced to make decisions of loyalty to one cause or the other.

Whether you are a fan of history, historical fiction, or just enjoy a good story, “Dreams of Glory” is a satisfactory and entertaining read. Five stars.

This book brought to my truth about how we almost lost our war for independence against the British. After two years of war, our army was starving, frozen, without funding from Congress and rioting against their leaders. Yet we prevailed. The story of how these patriots suffered and endured so that we could live in our own independent nation is remarkable and leaves me with the inspiration to make sure that their sacrifices are not in vain.

I have read previous books by this author but none for quite some time. Liberty Tavern was a favorite from 1976. I was pleased to see another like that with Dreams of Glory. It was a little slow starting but once I got into it, I was captivated and could not wait to get back to it. Good read if you like historical novels about early American History.

Mr. Fleming has a unique way to present historical facts in an interesting and enthralling easy. His writing method/style & presentation of history keeps the reader involved in the "story" as moves toward the known end through. This quick read is a Vinatage Fleming book.

Was not what I expected. I was more like a sex novel then history. It moved very slow and at times was difficult to follow.
excellent
