Overview

A Guide to the Battles of the American Revolution offers a unique and comprehensive account of nearly every engagement of a war that began with a skirmish at Lexington on April 19, 1775, erupted into a global conflict, and concluded beyond the Appalachian mountains in April 1783-nearly two years after the 1781 siege of Yorktown. Authors Savas and Dameron break down each campaign/battle into separate entries that include the date of the event(s), the theater and location, campaign with which it is associated, the ranks and commanders, opposing forces, terrain, weather, and time of day. The body of each entry offers both a Colonial and British perspective of the unfolding military situation, a detailed and unbiased account of the fighting that transpired, a discussion of numbers and losses, an assessment of the consequences of the battle, and what (if anything) remains to be seen where the fighting occurred. Each entry concludes with suggestions for further reading. Enhancing the book are 70 full page original maps. Fresh, scholarly, informative, and highly entertaining, this book will be welcomed by historians and general enthusiasts everywhere.
