King George: What Was His Problem?: Everything Your Schoolbooks Didn't Tell You About the American Revolution
KING GEORGE NEVER DID UNDERSTAND AMERICANS
"Entire books have been written about the causes of the American Revolution. This isn't one of them." What it is, instead, is utterly interesting, antedotes (John Hancock fixates on salmon), from the inside out (at the Battle of Eutaw Springs, hundreds of soldiers plunged into battle "naked as they were born") close-up narrative filled with little-known details, lots of quotes that capture the spirit and voices of the principals ("If need be, I will raise one thousand men, subsist them at my own expense, and march myself at their head for the relief of Boston" -- George Washington), and action, It's the story of the birth of our nation, complete with soldiers, spies, salmon sandwiches, and real facts you can't help but want to tell to everyone you know.

The book is awesome and helpfu in clarifying the events that led up to the American Revolution. I teach history and found the clarify great. Of course it is slanted toward the colonists but has a very fresh and clear perspective. Read full review
