Item description for The American Revolution (Landmark Books) by Bruce Bliven...

Recounts the events that led to the Revolutionary War, the major battles of the war, and its most important leaders

Publishers Description
In the American colonies of the 1770s, people were fed up with British laws. Local farmers and tradesmen secretly formed a militia. In 1775, when the British marched into Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, the Americans were ready. From that first battle to the final showdown at Yorktown, the Americans fought against tremendous odds. The British army was bigger and better trained. Food and guns were scarce. But George Washington' s ragged army fought for- and won- the freedom and independence we cherish to this day.Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, the tale of our country's fight for independence is brought to life in fast-moving, dramatic detail.

Reviews - What do customers think about The American Revolution (Landmark Books)?

A wonderful read.  Apr 1, 2006
I am a homeschooling mother and we read this book as a part of our study of the American Revolution. My girls have been fascinated and listen closely while we read. They are 5 and 9. They looked forward to the chapter readings every time. The 5 year old has expressed interest in visiting many of the historical sites pictured in the book. It was not a boring read at ALL!
Started a life long interest  May 26, 2005
I bought this book at a fifth grade book fair years ago. The artwork on the cover caught my eye - a gruff looking guy in an odd looking blue coat and tricorne hat. I couldn't resist and eagerly read the book in my spare time, including during the long bus trips to and from school. Twenty years later, I still love the American Revolution and world history, largely because of this book.
The most important war of the US  Mar 3, 2003
This book is about the story of the American Revolution, in which Americans fought the the British. The story tells of important battles that happened in real life. The battles that were fought were hard and tough for the soldiers. The soldiers ran into many problems. Some soldiers were killed or even captured. Other problems, for example, were the ones found at Valley Forge. There, the soldiers had no food and barely any clothing. My favorite character in this book is George Washington. He was a great general that was very talented with great strategies on how to win battles.

I really like this book. It describes great battles of the past that were important to people who serve for the cause of freedom. My favorite parts of the book are the parts I read about how we would sneak up on the British without getting caught. For example, it describes how Washington crossed the Delaware River to capture Trenton without getting caught by the enemy. The part I did not like reading is when Benedict Arnold betrayed the Americans by letting the enemy know all the good strategies that the Americans knew.

I would recommend this book to other people who like to read about important battles. You can learn about history and the different strategies that officers would use to win the war. If you like Social Studies, I would recommend this book for you to read.

About this book  Dec 3, 2002
This was a very good book. But it also bored me at times because the things in this book were the same things that I have read in my American History book.
The best book!  Jan 24, 2000
I think that this book is awesome because I love to learn about the American revolution, and I think that the battles in the South were the most amazing of them all because they were not armies but frontiersman who were fighting and won most of the battles. This book helped me understand what the American army had to go through. It also helped me understand that the American army wasn't really a big army, until France helped the Americans. This book is awesome!
