The Battle of Saratoga, comprising two significant battles during September and October of 1777, was a crucial victory for the Patriots during the American Revolution and is considered the turning point of the Revolutionary War.
The Battle gave the impetus for France to enter the war against Britain, re-invigorating Washington's Continental Army and providing much needed supplies and support. This great piece of artwork shows the British troops led by General John Burgoyne.
It was used as the stunning cover to Look And Learn number 569, published 9th December 1972.
