About This Book

The bitter and often bloody fight which accompanied the emergence of the United States of America as an independent force on the world stage has always been a subject of immense interest as well as of much debate and controversy. By reference to a wide range of source material, The War for American Independence conveys vividly the immediacy of events such as the battles of Bunker Hill and Saratoga and the sieges of Charleston and Yorktown, as well as less famous incidents, while also offering an original and thorough assessment of the campaign in its American, colonial and European contexts.

Combining a chronological survey of the war with a thematic examination of the major issues, and accompanied by over seventy illustrations and fifteen maps, Jeremy Black brings together a comprehensive account of a remarkable campaign, which also challenges many traditional assumptions.
