Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The America Revolution remains a watershed event in modern history. Confronted by external controls of the powerful British Empire, some of the Colonial Americans were able to break away and establish what was to eventually become the leading world superpower. However, in 1775, it would have appeared irrational to contemporary observers that the American rebels would be able to withstand even one-armed confrontation with the red-coated British troops. In the spring of that year at Lexington and Concord in New England, the violence that was to spread and become the Revolution broke out. There, British soldiers and their American cousins shed one another's blood and sparked the sweeping events of the American Revolution. That story is ably told in this concise, illustrated history of that campaign. The author utilizes a well-honed text, colorful illustrations and numerous period quotations to paint a vivid picture. Unfortunately, this reviewer is unable to provide a full endorsement of this publication, as the review copy did not include the first sixteen pages of text nor the author's full name. Part of the "Let Freedom Ring" series.
