1 Review
Detailing the history of the struggle for independence, from colonial government to the early days of the American republic, this book uses full-colour maps and illustrations in two-page spreads to tell the story of the founding of the United States of America. It focuses on the land and sea battles of the Revolutionary War, but attention is also paid to the society at large and the international impact of the war for independence.
