Redcoats and Rebels provides a thorough introduction to the Revolutionary War. Told with great authority and clarity it describes and details the effects of each notable event from 1770 to 1781, examining each of the major battles and skirmishes but not getting bogged down in deep analysis of battle formations and strategies.
Instead concentrating on the war as a whole and its political and economic impacts on Britain and America and consequently how each commander's strategy was affected, the book is filled with anecdotes to give the reader a clearer understanding of how the war affected the lives of those involved.
“…a fine blend of specialty in depth examination and wider ranging analysis. Any library strong in early American military history needs this.”

This book nwas filled with interesting facts about the American Revolution. We (Americans) usually know about the Revolutionary War only through the Patriots eyes, this changes all that. Read it for yourself.
