The must-have companion to Bill O'Reilly's historical docudrama Legends and Lies: The Patriots, an exciting and eye-opening look at the Revolutionary War through the lives of its leaders
The American Revolution was neither inevitable nor a unanimous cause. It pitted neighbors against each other, as loyalists and colonial rebels faced off for their lives and futures. These were the times that tried men's souls: no one was on stable ground and few could be trusted. Through the fascinating tales of the first Americans,Legends and Lies: The Patriots reveals the contentious arguments that turned friends into foes and the country into a warzone.
From the riots over a child's murder that led to the Boston Massacre to the suspicious return of Ben Franklin, the "First American;" from the Continental Army's first victory under George Washington's leadership to the little known southern Guerilla campaign of "Swamp Fox" Francis Marion, and the celebration of America's first Christmas, The Patriots recreates the amazing combination of resourcefulness, perseverance, strategy, and luck that led to this country's creation.
Told in the same fast-paced, immersive narrative as the first Legends and Lies, The Patriots is an irresistible, adventure-packed journey back into one of the most storied moments of our nation's rich history.

An exciting and eye-opening look at the Revolutionary War through the lives of its leaders.

What can you say about a book like this. American History light, as with all of Bill O'Reilly's books; interesting, fun, with little meat but enough to provide a good overview. While I am a history junky have never really read in-depth regarding the American Revolution expect for biographies of several of the founding-fathers. Reading this did pique my interest in several aspects and probably will lead to more specific reading regarding the period.

Would recommend this book to anyone who has even a passing curiosity regarding the American Revolution as it does hit most high points and reasonable inclusion of the more noteworthy participants. ( )

dnf - picked this up on a road trip and tried to listen but only made it through the first cd and had to turn it off mid-way through the second because after Sarah Vowell's pilgrims and patriots these guys sound like they are droning on and on and on and on and only telling 1/10 of the stories of the times they present - you would think it should be impossible make something as exciting as the revolution and it's cast of characters boring but here you go . . .

Having recently read "Killing England" and "Hamilton", I found much of this information was repeated from those books. There were a few new stories that weren't covered in the other books. The basic premise seems to be taking legendary incidents and deciding if there is or is not historical evidence to support the legend. This book covers the founding fathers and incidents surrounding the Revolutionary War and the creation of the USA. ( )

If you want a nice, somewhat succinct book on the founding fathers and the American Revolution, "Legends and Lies, The Patriots" is not a bad place to start. It covers the unrest that sparked the flame of the Revolution all the way to the Louisiana Purchase and the Hamilton/Burr duel. There are some wonderful photos and illustrations throughout.

Having not watched Bill O'Reilly's show of the same name, I expected this book to be categorized into "legends" and "lies." This was not the case. The bulk of the book covers the "legends"—those amazing men who banded together to form a nation. There are a few sections that could be called "lies" but they focus more on the fact that much of the topic at hand is unknown or unsubstantiated (like Betsy Ross sewing the first flag). This doesn't deter from the quality of the book, but it seems somewhat counter to the title. ( )
