Which is really the most you can say about an Encylopedia. The title says it all, its a comprehensive gathering of information related to the American War of Independence. Originally published in 1966, some of the material may be dated but the sheer amount of information offered to the reader is really too good to pass up. Although it is probably more useful for serious researchers than for casual readers, it can be very helpful to use the book to look up specific information about characters and events that you run across in more general narratives of the war.

this book is not good do not read it. This book is long and boring and does not tell the truth.
