Patriots, the Men Who Started the American Revolution by A. J. Langguth

Print

There have been countless books written on the American Revolution, but they tend to fall into two categories: rather boring textbooks or centered around the life of a single event or personality such as Washington or Jefferson. Langguth felt, “There seemed to be a place for a book that approached the revolution as a story, focusing on the principal actors as they moved from the writs-of-assistance trial in 1761 to General Washington’s resignation from the Continental Army in 1783.” So our author wrote such a book and it is a beauty. If you like history you will love Patriots .
