Overview

Revolution An Uncommon Chronicle of the American War for Independence by Kenneth Samcoe

"Revolution" is a chronicle of a remarkable contest fought between the largest, most powerful army on earth and a motley collection of men and boys, extremely ill equipped and inexperienced in the arts of warfare. It reveals how the radical revolutionaries, revered today as the nation's founding fathers, sometimes barely succeed and more often miserably fail to keep a healthy Continental army and a pusillanimous Continental Congress together.

Written in the present tense, as newspaper articles and interviews, "Revolution" is also the story of a civil conflict fought in a divided country where the words "liberty" and "independence" are equally cheered, cursed and ignored.
