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...
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.
It's an unbelievable look into our bravest, most often over looked hero's. From the fierce stealth fight of the Swamp fox and his army to the still deep scares of slavery. The effort, black and white, put forth by our forefathers are wonderfully brought together in this book. They sacrificed everything for all Americans to grow into what we are today. It's a true reminder of how strong we stand together for freedom.
There are so many stories within the story of the American Revolution that it is often difficult to keep stories and timelines clear. Mr. O'Reilly does an excellent job of keeping things in order while providing some background information clearly, in an easy to follow format.
The reading was equally clear and dramatic but not overly so.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this written/audible version of 'Legends and Lies The American Patriots.
