Second, enlarged, and best edition, enlarged with the help of Thomas Jefferson. "In its completed form the best French history of this war; Rochambeau aided in its preparation"- Howes. The emphasis on French and Spanish participation makes this work stand out. It covers the entire Revolution, from 1774 to 1783 and experts generally agree with Howes that it is the best French history of the American Revolutionary War.
