Review:

'Extensively researched, gracefully written'

(The Washington Times)

‘O’Shaughnessy artfully weaves the entire breadth and sweep of the wars of the American Revolution [and] destroys certain deeply entrenched myths.’

(The Objective Standard)

'Engaging...keeps the whole picture firmly in view: Britain, North America, the Caribbean, the balance-of-power politics on the Continent-all affected by the colonial rebellion.'

(Brendan Simms, Washington Street Journal)

'[The] work of an historian in thorough command of his sources who writes with admirable grace and acuity.'

(Weekly Standard)

'Further enriches our appreciation of the American Revolution... O’Shaughnessy’s biographical sketches are captivating and will be read with enjoyment by academics and general readers alike.'

(Times Literary Supplement)

"A first-rate study, scholarly, yet accessible."

(Military History Monthly)

"A perfect demonstration of how modern scholarship and original thought can change the way that we think about the past. It is a brilliant book."

(BBC History)

"Challenges the conventional view...fascinating."

(Guardian)

"First-rank revisionist history."

(Independent)

“Fascinating, well written and extensively researched."

(Saul David, Sunday Telegraph)
