This book was about a kid named Jonathan who always dreamed about going to war. But when he did he regreted his deccision. Let me tell you more. whell Joathan a thirteen year old boy
decided to go to war. He had no permissan and his parents told him only to get the newsbut instead he went to war. He got caught by hessians, saw lots of blood and was terrifed to death. He was misserable , and I bet he has changed his mind on what he thought about war.I would never want to go to war.

This book was okay. It was about a boy who went to war because he thought it would be cool and because his dad and his brother went. But when he finds out what war is about he was glad to be back home.

I thought the fighting ground was a very interested book. I liked the part when Jonathan went to war. Jonathan ran away and was captured by the Hessians.I thought the end of the book was a happy ending because he returned home safely and not wounded. It was a very good book about the revolution war.

this book is about a 13 year old boy who goes to war.he is captured by the Hessians who speak no english.I thought this book wouldn't be one of my favorites,and it wasn't,But it taught me about war,and life back in 1778.I wouldn't recomend this book to some of my closest friends,but if you like war,this is a good book to choose.

I didn't excatly enjoy reading this book but i wouldn't say it is horrible. Lets just say that Jonathan ,a 13year old boy, wanted to go to war. So one day he had the chance and he took it . He was fighting the Hessians. He took the chance of not listening to his parnets. So he went off to war. Im not going to give it all away because you have yo read the book.

This book is boring,the language is terrible,so I rated it a one. I will never suggest this book to anyone. People are shot,sware words are used,and God's name is used in vain.

I did not like this book because it was boring to me. I think that this book is a bad influence because it uses bad words, peaple are killed,and they use gods name in vain.
