The must-have companion to Bill O'Reilly's historical docudrama Legends and Lies: The Patriots, an exciting and eye-opening look at the Revolutionary War through the lives of its leaders
The American Revolution was neither inevitable nor a unanimous cause. It pitted neighbors against each other as loyalists and colonial rebels faced off for their lives and futures. These were the times that tried men's souls: No one was on stable ground, and few could be trusted.
Through the fascinating tales of the first Americans, Legends and Lies: The Patriots reveals the contentious arguments that turned friends into foes and the country into a war zone. From the riots over a child's murder that led to the Boston Massacre to the suspicious return of Ben Franklin, the "First American"; from the Continental Army's first victory under George Washington's leadership to the little-known Southern guerilla campaign of "Swamp Fox" Francis Marion and the celebration of America's first Christmas, The Patriots recreates the amazing combination of resourcefulness, perseverance, strategy, and luck that led to this country's creation.
Told in the same fast-paced, immersive narrative as the first Legends and Lies, The Patriots is an irresistible, adventure-packed journey back into one of the most storied moments of our nation's rich history.

David Fisher and Bill O'Reilly did a great job covering The Patriots it was engageing and very informative. The only issue I had was Holter Graham reading of it, at times he didn't sound believing or trying to hard a little grating on my mind but other times he would do it justice with the different voices or dialects that were used. Can't wait to watch the TV version of the book.
The writing is Not on the same level as the "Killing ..." series. Boring. This narrator makes it four times worse. I have never written a review on audiobooks. But can't recommend this by any means. Will not finish this one.
good book... not my favorite O'Reilly Book.. but lots of interesting facts... did not seem to flow like his other books, but will worth listening too... I enjoyed it...
Learned a lot about our country's founding without being put to sleep. No need to be a history buff to enjoy this book about the men and women who bravely formed our country
This was an interesting book and the narrator was good. I tried to listen to a few of Bill O'Reilly's other books which were read by him and I couldn't do it. I was very pleased that this book was read by somebody else. It was educational while also being interesting.
Great look at our history!
The narrator's must have learned his English accent from The Dread Pirate Roberts.
Another wonderful book by Bill O'Reilly. I've thoroughly enjoyed all of Bill's books this is # 4. I learned many new things from our early history. This was a great book to clear up things from history class.
The chapter about Paul Revere was enlightening. I had no idea that there was more than 1 rider, & that one was a woman!
These books are wonderful to listen to during my early morning walks.
