The American Revolution 1774-1783
This book offers a new interpretation of the period of fighting out of which the United States was born. The American Revolution has been characterized politically as a united uprising of the American colonies and militarily as a guerrilla campaign of colonists against the inflexible British military establishment. In this book, Daniel Marston argues that this belief, though widespread, is a misconception. He contends that the American Revolution created deep political divisions in the population of the thirteen colonies, and that in reality it was a war between rival groups of British veterans of the Seven Years' War.
