France entered the American Revolution on the side of the colonists in 1778 .

France entered the American Revolution on the side of the colonists in 1778, turning what had essentially been a civil war into an international conflict. When the Second Continental Congress convened in Philadelphia, delegates–including new additions Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson–voted to form a Continental Army, with Washington as its commander in chief. Though neither side would take decisive action over the better part of the next two years, the British removal of their troops from Charleston and Savannah in late 1782 finally pointed to the end of the conflict.

His The American Revolution: A History is delightfully concise at a time when most .

His The American Revolution: A History is delightfully concise at a time when most academics write more and more while saying less and less. It also has some great maps in the front of the book, though he doesn’t particularly refer to them in the text. It’s a great starting point to both the Revolution’s historiography, but also one of its most famous historians. Next I’ll bring up Robert Middlekauff’s The Glorious Cause, part of the Oxford History of the United States. Like Wood above, the book begins in the 1760’s in the aftermath of the French and Indian War (The Seven Years’ War), and is notable for being well-written.

Battles of the American Revolution were fought by European combatants .

Battles of the American Revolution were fought by European combatants as far away as Gibraltar, as the painting above illustrates. The American Revolution was a truly global conflict, with battles being fought in North America, the Caribbean, and Europe. The British were aided by both loyal Native American tribes, and Hessian troops from various German principalities. Though the winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge was nowhere near as severe as the one soldiers suffered through in Morristown, . in 1780, the Valley Forge men nevertheless suffered harsh conditions and periodic food shortages.

This American Revolution history is a story of places, specific locations where the Revolution's social and military upheavals happened, and provides a vivid sense of both people and places where the heart of the civil war with Britain occurred. 133 pages with bibliography and index. 9.4 x 6.25 inches.
