Product description

The story of the American Revolution is usually told in terms of a conflict between blundering British generals and their rigidly disciplined red-coated troops on one side and the heroic American patriot in their homespun shirts and coonskin caps on the other. In this fresh look at the revolutionary war this book portrays the realities of a war that thousands of George Washington's fellow countrymen condemned and one he came close to losing. Based on a variety of sources with character sketches and eyewitness accounts, this work presents a vivd picture of the "cruel, accursed" war that changed the world forever.
