Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The American Revolution remains one of the single moments of the nation's history. In 1776 the colonials set out to establish a new nation separate from the British motherland. Over the course of seven years armed struggle ensued and eventually resulted in that outcome. However, the deeds enacted by Patriots, Redcoats, Hessians, and Loyalists represented far more than mere words can convey. The Revolutionary War was as much, if not more, of a civil war than the conflict that was to break out in 1861. At stake were the future of the American nation and the control of the "New World." It is this compelling tale that author Virginia Schomp turns her capable attention to in this volume of the "Letters from the Battlefront" series. In this illustrated work writer Schomp weaves together a concise narrative history of the Revolutionary War and primary source documents. The author uses letters written by renowned and common people of the time to augment the text in a meaningful way. As a result of this literary merger readers will meet participants in the major events of the war through their own writings. This combination of historical narrative with first hand accounts augments the reader's experience and helps the events come to life more fully. In this way Virginia Schomp has crafted a valuable addition to the body of literature available to youngsters interested in learning more about the Revolutionary War and the people who lived through it. 2004, Marshall Cavendish, Ages 12 up.
