By A Customer on July 30, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book is a straight-forward account of the American Revolution. It is fast paced and informative. There is enough personal drama to keep it interesting, but not so much as to bog down the flow. A perfect book to give basic information about the war without specific battle by battle gory details. Great for those with "non-military" interest.

My granddaughter ordered this book (she is very much into history) but I thought it was a little immature for her - she is 12 and is very well read for her age. I would recommend this for a younger crowd.
