    ABC-CLIO 2012; US$ 53.00

    Millions of Americans are still angry about big business bailouts and wasteful government spending, contributing to the tea party insurgence.

    The average American knows little or nothing of the great service rendered by Admiral de Grasse, a French admiral, to the cause of American independence in the battle off Cape Henry in 1781.

  • The War of American Independenceby Richard Middleton

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 46.95

    Wars rarely turn out as expected. This book shows how Britain entered a conflict that it believed could not be lost. The American Patriots were similarly optimistic about their martial prospects.

    Lyons Press 2011; US$ 29.99

    The outcome was one of history?s great, surprising events, David slaying Goliath. At the beginning of the war, which cast the world?s most powerful nation against a shaky collection of its wildly independent colonies, no such outcome was conceivable. But as the upstarts slowly welded themselves into an effective force, step by step the Americans whipped... more...

    Oneworld Publications 2013; US$ 25.24

    In 1781 the British Empire suffered its most devastating defeat in a war that most believed Britain ought to have won.

    UNP - Bison Books 2015; US$ 36.95

    The events of the American Revolution signified by Lexington, Bunker Hill, Valley Forge, Saratoga, and Yorktown are familiar to American readers.

Not always in command of the seas and threatened... more...
