Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
The American Revolution was not only a turning point in American history but also a firebrand in the night that inspired subsequent revolutionary movements in Europe. As such, the American Revolution remains one of the turning points in western history. In this compact yet comprehensive illustrated history, Kent takes her readers on a journey back to 1776 and the days that shaped what would ultimately become the United States of America. Written with a deft eye not only for historical fact but also the telling of a good story, this publication offers readers an excellent introduction to its subject. In telling the story of the American Revolution Kent touches on not only the keynote military events, but also the social history aspects of the war. Battles such as Trenton, Saratoga, and Yorktown are detailed with care but so too are topics such as the origins of the war, divided loyalties among colonists, and the political back-story that played out in those halcyon days. Of particular value are the periodic primary source quotations and citations that pepper the well written narrative. These period observations by soldiers, civilians, and politicians help bring a critical time period in American history to life. The end result of this approach is a fine work of history that goes a long way toward helping readers to understand both the events and effects of the American Revolution. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
