In the book he gives a detailed account of the event, mostly describing the tactics used while defending the river crossing by 50 men of an infantry. He summarizes the war’s resume not omitting faults and mistakes that enemies never forgive. Swinton gives lessons, so thoroughly explaining every action and using special war terms that the reader can learn much from that.
