Black provides a clear narrative of the war, taken year by year, with good chapters on some of the later years that are often skipped over. This book will give you a very clear idea of the events of the war, as well as the British policy that led to the outbreak of violence in 1775 and the developments that turned a loyal rebellion into the birth of a nation.
Black's narrative is supported by a wide range of quote from participents in the conflict, which helps to give the book an impressive feeling of immediacy, bringing the events of the war to life in a way that many books do not achieve.
