One of the basic contemporary histories of the American Revolution, this detailed narrative was compiled largely from newspaper articles and the proceedings of the House of Commons. It is illustrated with portraits of principals such as Washington, Clinton, Greene, Cornwallis, Burgoyne, Lafayette, Capt. Asgill, and Count D'Estaing.
The maps show the North American colonies as far west as the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River, the English Channel, India, the West Indies, and other hot spots of the time in Europe and elsewhere.
