Note the author of the article was the author of the book. So it is not really an announcement of a newly published work, just an exerpt.

Hmm, I wonder about him then,if he really wrote that fifth paragraph--"This unique book" etc. Seems an odd stance for a writer.

It's a poor author who doesn't pump his book at every opportunity. So, not really sure what your on about.

"The story of Seward and the other Marylanders is captured in the best-selling book 'Washington's Immortals',recently released in paperback. This unique book is the first Band of Brothers treatment of the American Revolution,detailing the most important elements of nearly every significant battle of the War of Independence".

That.

It reads like (and may well be) a publisher's blurb,rather than a statement from the author.

YMMV.

"No such thing as bad publicity"

A year or so ago, Don Troiani completed a painting of Captain Samuel Smith with the surviving men of his company, at the edge of the Gowanus mill pond- (rather than the creek) No sign of the 'slab' some used to support themselves, as I recall, but a good study of the Vechte-Cortelyou house in its heyday (and on the correct site).
