While other histories of the American Revolution hint at the violence during the start of our nation, this book gives it with both barrels – literally. There is no sugar coating here. This is a comprehensive look at a destructive as well as a productive time in our history.
If you want the honest story with all the details then this is definitely the book to add to your shelf of history. If, however, you are uncomfortable with the unpleasant details that led to our country then stick to one of the many sanitized versions in other American History books.
