Two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize and best-selling author Barbara W. Tuchman analyzes the American Revolution in a brilliantly original way, placing the war in the historical context of the centuries-long conflicts between England and both France and Holland.

This compellingly written history presents a fresh, new view of the events that led from the first foreign salute to American nationhood in 1776 to the last campaign of the Revolution five years later. It paints a magnificent portrait of General George Washington and recounts in riveting detail the events responsible for the birth of our nation. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Enjoyable history of American Revolution with strong focus on the European involvements and very little on many of the commonly known battles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jonathan | 2/17/2014

    " I learned more about the historical context of my nation's birth from this book than I learned in my schooling. I have read many of Tuchman's books, and was not disappointed with this one. Her popular histories have a nice flow, and she doesn't pad the book with poetic attempts to put the reader into the scene. "

    " An enjoyable history of the American revolution from a different perspective. "

    " This was a very interesting take on the American Revolution, discussing it in terms of being a continuation of the wars in Europe. Lots of interesting points and very readable. "
