    " 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. "

    " This is a pretty good book, Barbara Tuchman did a decent amount of research and did give a new and different look at the American Revolution. It's not a long book and I think it is worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Nathan | 2/6/2014

    " An idiosyncratic look at the American Revolution, focussing for the main part on maritime affairs and foreign relations, including such things as a long digression about the history of Holland. On the way learned a reasonable amount about naval tactics and shipboard conditions in the 18th century. Nobody comes out of the events looking like a genius. Rated G. 3/5 "
