Frederick Pyne has done a remarkable job of showing all sides of the bitter, often divisive struggle. Above all he has captured the innumerable moments of high courage and decisive acts that make the drama one of the most unforgettable stories in the history of the world"-Thomas Fleming, author of The Perils of Peace: America's Struggle to Survive after Yorktown"I have seen several chronologies relating to the Revolutionary War, but none that have been presented in such detail. In addition to each entry being dated, the day of the week is also noted. I also like the way separate entries for a single day are indented. Whether this monumental compilation is used as a reference book or read from beginning to end, it will undoubtedly take its place as a work of lasting benefit for laymen, students, and academicians alike."-Michael A. Christian, librarian, National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution"The War of the American Revolution: Day by Day is a remarkable achievement. Pyne's richly detailed, skillfully constructed narrative conveys the drama of these historical events with both freshness and accuracy."-Barnet Schecter, historian, author of The Battle for New YorkNumerous illustrations, maps, a glossary, a bibliography, appendices, and an index to full names, places and subjects enhance this exceptional work. 2010, 6x9, paper, 652 pp. 101-P4910 ISBN: 0788449109
