Baron Ludwig von Closen-Haydenburg's lively account of his campaigns in America as aide-de-camp to Rochambeau during the Revolution is at last available here in published form. This is not only a translation but a critical edition that identifies the numerous eighteenth-century sources the Baron used in rewriting his journal in later years.

Originally published in 1958.
