Guess what?

A fine overview of the American Revolution and highly recommended for people who want an in depth account without listening to longer audiobooks. It covers the conflict from start to finish with breakdowns of major battles and events providing a concluding rating system that allows one to truly understand the outcomes.

Facts are stranger than fiction sometimes

I think Americans look at their revolution through 'rose coloured glasses'. Their entertainment history is so out of whack with actual history you have to wonder if Disney created it. As with all good stories, it is neither simple or clear cut and this book covers that. According to this history, only the British troops really come off with any honour but I am sure there was incidents not reported of misconduct. War is hell and it tends to bring out the worse and the best in people that both the loyalist and patriots shared in these. A war that could have been stopped at anytime, and as most conflicts are, based on a lie to start with. I suppose one of the great tragedies of history.

You won’t be able to shut it off!

Great topic. Read well. Solid history. For the beginner and someone who has read or listened to many.
