Revolutionary War history

Discussion in 'The Book Rack' started by armedcitizen, Jul 28, 2005.

  1. Can anyone recommend a good overall history of the Revolution, along the lines of Battle Cry of Freedom for the Civil War?

    However, as a preface to the Revolution in general, read,

    Common Sense by Thomas Paine.

    I got a nice little hard-bound edition printed by Barnes and Noble for their stores. Even with a 15pg. introduction, it's only about 80 pages long. I'm going to re-read now, since there's so much MEAT contained there.;P

    Powerful stuff.;z

    If you like mixing fiction with history, the entire series by Kennth Roberts is highly recommended:

    Arundel
    Rabble in Arms
    Northwest Passage
    Captain Caution
    The Lively Lady
    Oliver Wiswell
    Lydia Bailey

    I read a book called "George Washington's War" which was a good overall view of the war.
