Publisher's Summary

A nation is born

Lexington, Bunker Hill, Saratoga, Washington, Hamilton, Benedict Arnold. All familiar names, but how did they all fit together? How did merchants, lawyers, farmers, and cobblers come together to defeat the British Empire, its powerful navy, and its Hessian auxiliaries? For that matter, who were the Hessians, and what is an auxiliary?

Bringing together 10 eminent Revolutionary War experts, editor Ed Lengel presents their stirring narratives of the military campaigns that changed history and gave birth to a new nation. These historians guide you through the fateful decade of the 1770s in British America. In 1776, you battle in Brooklyn Heights, then cross the Delaware with Washington. In the late summer and fall of '77, you bushwhack down the Champlain Valley with Johnny Burgoyne. You struggle through winter with Washington and his beleaguered troops in Valley Forge. When the spring of '78 turns to summer, you endure the oppressive heat and the massive battle on New Jersey farmland at Monmouth Courthouse. In 1780 your journey takes you south into a bloody civil war-Tory versus patriot, neighbor versus neighbor in Georgia and the Carolinas. Finally, in '81, you join the patriots as they maneuver north into Virginia, where Washington and the French navy can trap the British on the Yorktown Peninsula.

Great history! Performance a little flat.

Review of the major campaigns of the American Revolution. Description of the setting, the players, the military moves, the outcome, and why it matters. Very well done. The reader is a little monotone.
