This book provides a good look at "what happened and why" before the war, for certain key battles, and during the postwar period. It covers material that school history classes typically don't, and ties it all together.

This is a great summary of the American Revolution, though I think its audience is teens. It does a great job showing how the Revolution evolved and gained momentum through self-interest of various groups rather than by high-minded idealism of a continent of European colonialists.

Sons of Liberty opposed Shay's Rebellion, not becaus ...more

If you're like me, and don't remember much of the American Revolution outside of the Founding Fathers, then this is the book for you. Or even if you remember everything about it and need a brush up. Or if you're brand new to the subject.

A short history of the American Revolution done in comic form. I zipped through this book, learned a lot, and enjoyed it the whole time. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer. :)
