Great book that delves into various aspects of the military struggle for American Independence. I heartily recommend it for anyone interested in American History, and on the nature of the American insurgency itself.

Fascinating collection of essays about the Revolutionary War that were all written during or just after the Vietnam War. Thus the questions are very interesting. Could the British have won American "hearts and minds"? (Probably not.) Could the Revolution have been averted if the British had been more sympathetic to the Americans. (The British were probably as sympathetic as they were going to be.) The final essay, about the American military experience from colonial days to Vietnam, is thought-provoking and still applicable, I think, post-Iraq.

This book of essays is a wide ranging discussion on a variety of issues from the Revolutionary War. The essays I found most interesting were on the changing views of the militia, and the battle to win the hearts and minds of the colonists.
