The American Revolution
From Lexington to Yorktown, Bruce Lancaster's classic, THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, covers the story of America's fight for independence in vivid detail. Here Lancaster examines both the historical facts of the Revolution and the sacrifice and bravery of the American people during the eighteenth century and brings the dilemmas faced by these early Americans into sharp focus. Newly introduced by the critically acclaimed author Richard M. Ketchum, THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION is a highly readable and engaging volume, and "as a book for the general reader it could scarcely be bettered" (Christian Science Monitor).
