That said, the book presents an excellent history of the American Revolution from the British perspective. It doesn't go out of its way to slime the Americans, and Henty often gives them credit for heroism and charity. Nor does he overly romanticize the British. He often excoriates the British generals for incompetence. Still, he makes the British argument for the loyalist cause, and he does a creditable job.
One word of warning to the ever-so-sensitive: Henty was writing in the 19th century, so if you get upset about less than flattering portrayals of American Indians and Blacks, do us all a favor: pass this book up and move on to the Da Vinci Code or George R.R. Martin's lastest excretion. But, if you're a big boy, then give Henty's work a try. You'll enjoy it.
"Mr DEAR COUSIN: lam leaving next week with mj husband for England, where we intend to pass some tiino visiting his frauds."
It is worse in places where I can't even decide what the author intended to say. I'm disappointed and hoping I can return this book for one I can actually read.
