KIRKUS REVIEW

The events preceding, during, and following the American revolution are probably pretty familiar to most school children. The challenge of presenting these events in enjoyable form, therefore, becomes somewhat problematic to even the most inventive writer. Intelligently written and packed with information, Bruce Bliven has injected a note of enthusiasm into his subject by including as many personalities, and events involving dramatic action, as possible. He has also made an interesting choice by describing in some detail contemporary political life in England at the time of the revolution, a factor which played an important part in the attitude of the colonists that many historians tend to underplay.
