The prize-winning historian’s fresh look at the people and events that decided America’s struggle for independence. Its suspenseful climax is the 500-mile march undertaken by General Washington to surround Cornwallis at Yorktown.

The fact that a British woman, Davina Porter, read about the American Rebellion made this enjoyable.
How influential the Dutch and French were in helping the floundering American Rebellion become victorious over the British masters. This gets left out of school text books.
She read with enthusiasm. She would change her voice when reading dialogue of the different characters.
No extreme reactions, just well done.
Learning about naval warfare in the 18th Century was interesting for me. The land battles get most of the press, but the American, French and Dutch navies helped bring this Rebellion to a successful conclusion.
