Hard going at times but a fascinating story
This is fascinating global story of the Americans who did not what to be American--the loyalists from the American Revolution. Apart from Benedict Arnold, these people (and there are hundreds of thousands of them, not just a few traitors) get such little attention in U.S. history. The book shows how important they were and the diverse reasons why they sided with Britain. The style is a bit hard going at times and often dull, but the sheer interest of these peoples' experience makes it worth looking at--at least until something more accessible comes along.
