This remarkable new handbook makes studying the Revolutionary War simple and pleasurable. The authors use clear and concise writing broken down into short and easy to understand chapters complete with original maps, tables, charts, and dozens of drawings to trace the history of the Revolution from the beginning of the conflict through the final surrender in 1783.
The New American Revolution Handbook includes a wide range of topics and subjects, many of which are ignored or glossed over in traditional texts. In addition to the traditional study of battles and campaigns, Savas and Dameron provide topical focus on such subjects as women, Native Americans, African Americans, the Dutch, the Germans, the Spanish, the French, technology, numbers and losses, and much more. The handbook also covers military organizations, the armies and navies, commanders on both sides, and references and recommendations for additional detailed research. Experienced readers will readily identify the value of ship lists, organizational charts, and flags of the war. Never before has so much invigorating material been packed into such an easy-to-read book.
Exciting, informative, educational, and highly motivating, The New American Revolution Handbook will be an especially useful tool for both students and teachers. As a quick fact reference book or as a leisure read, it will provide hours of exploration and immersion into a fascinating world at war that continues to impact our lives today.
