Summary, etc.:
"Although we rarely consider it today, it was remarkable that the small forces of the American colonies were the victors of the American Revolution. After all, England was the most powerful nation in the world at that time. This entertaining volume, an appealing way to present the important facts surrounding the Revolution, takes readers into the biographies of the Founding Fathers as well as George III and his advisors. The crucial events and decisions that ultimately led to England's loss are presented in an accessible narrative that will appeal to young historians and Revolutionary War buffs alike"--Provided by the publisher.
