The first one-volume survey of the American Revolution that is both objective and comprehensive, this outstanding narrative history traces the growth of a conflict that inexorably set the American colonies on the road to independence. Offering a spirited chronicle of the war itself — the campaigns and strategies, the leaders on both sides, the problems of fielding and sustaining an army, and of maintaining morale — James L. Stokesbury also brings the reader to the Peace of Paris in 1783 and into the militarily exhausted, financially ruined yet victorious United States as it emerged to create a workable national system.  (Softcover, 308 pages)
