This electronic edition had some of the traditional flaws associated with electronic translations. There were symbols where letters should be and there were breaks at odd times on the pages. These did not occur often but if the reader is not accustomed to reading old English it would cause them concern. I, however, wasn't really bothered and was very glad this work had been made into an ebook.

    Interesting, but...

    Not what I expected. Interesting from an historical perspective, but a little hard to read. Not much personal information, but a lot of history.

    Good reading...for Historians only

    This book is written during the country's revolution years. The old english vocabulary used and written in the book is hard to understand and does not come up when 'look-up' is used (NOOK). Not as entertaining and informative as I thought it would read.

    Poor formatting for the eBook edition.

    Many of the words are scrambled.
