Ask most Americans why their forefathers started the Revolution, and they’ll likely mention "no taxation without representation” or the belief in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as inalienable rights. But that’s just the start of the story, as historian Alan Axelrod so brilliantly shows in this eye-opening book. Axelrod offers a fascinating examination of what really caused the breach across the Atlantic and how the revolutionary movement began. The American Revolution brought something unique to the world: an entirely new kind of nation, founded on a set of ideas. In engrossing, conversational prose, Axelrod brings the birth of America to life by digging beneath the classically taught history to explore everything from little-known facts to alternate realities, along with the eyewitness testimony, pop culture, and art of the period. From the seeds of dissent through the long fight to glorious victory, the astonishing story of America’s revolution finally comes fully to light.… (mere)

A great book for an overall picture of the American Revolution. Doesn't concentrate on any one area or event, instead choosing to give a brief description of all the significant pieces.
Has a great collection of artwork, pictures of original documents, maps and other "extras" in the margins and within the text. Reminds me of what I saw in history text books back in school ( )

An excellent single volume, reader-friendly history of the American Revolution. I especially admired the introductory chapters which focused on the causes of the revolution. The Russian and French Revolutions were rebellions by the starving lower class. But as author Alan Axelrod makes clear, the American Revolution's causes were less clear...it was, after all, a war between peers. English mistakes laid the groundwork for revolution and the author lays them out. Loaded with sidebars, factoids, and photos, this is a good starting point for anyone wanting to dip into the subject. Having read several books on the topic, although by means being a date-memorizing expert, I found plenty of new information. ( )

From A to Z, this book chronicles the events that turned our fledgling little group of colonies into its own country. Very descriptive and full of interesting side stories and wierd facts. ( )
