But the looming war for independence will soon bring a turn of events neither master nor slave could have predicted. Within months they will be fighting on opposite sides: Washington as commander of the Continental Army, Caesar as a soldier in the legendary Loyalist corps made up of former slaves.In this captivating tour de force brimming with spectacular battle scenes and gripping historical detail, Caesar's perilous rise through the British ranks is deftly interwoven with the story of Washington's war years, leading to the day when they come face to face again - this time in uniform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating and satisfying Could not put this book down. The POV is unique and made me think of aspects of history that I had not considered before. The feeling of being on campaign with the character Caesar has an authenticity to it that is lovely. Following the field of battle in the Revolution from the perspective of the soldier was instructive and the battle scenes were breathtaking. The female characters showed many aspects of the slave trade and the Revolution that are missing from the history books. What a great read!

Editorial Reviews

'A novel set against the historical backdrop of the American Revolution needs at its heart a plot strong enough to stand up against the weight of history. And in Washington and Caesar that's exactly what you get. Cameron does full justice to the dramatic potential of his scenario, handling the battle scenes with confidence and investing just the right amount of historical authenticty. The result is a work of considerable profundity.'Yorkshire Evening Post
