    1. I really enjoyed this. If you're an american history buff, this is a great resource about the Revolutionary War. My edition was a two volume hard cover set. A few parts crawl along a little bit, but most of it moves pretty quickly. It's also well organized.

    2. I'll give a more though review once I'm finished with this fascinating two volumes in one military treatise on the American Revolution. I will say if you're looking for an easy to read narrative on the military aspect of The American Revolution, which covers many of the campaigns and battles. Without the political aspect thrown in. Look no further than this book. This treatise is definitely one of my personal favorites I've read on the American Revolution. Like I said, its an easy to read narrat [...]

    3. A thorough, detailed compliation of the revolution. At 1000 pages, and most of the work concentrated on military action, it could be a hard read for some. For me, a long time Marine and student of military actions, this was a treat. Military studies aside, this was a deep dive look at the war and I learned so much of our history and the names involved. The biggest problem I had with the book was keeping up with all the new material I became instantly interested in for future research and study. [...]

    4. Long, long book. Lots of troop numbers and explanations of the layout of the terrain, not enough maps! America got lucky on numerous occasions, its surviving horrible conditions, its leadership enduring frequent desertion, and bankrupt of supplies and materiel, it truly is a miracle the country gained its independence.

    5. A precise account of each battle,Ward was a masterful author who provided great insight into the who,what and how of each battle.He demonstrated incredible knowledge and had a gift for putting in in layman's terms.An excellent read on the subject!

    6. Amazing work including maps and first person accounts of the many battles of the Revolution. There was no us or them it was a straight forward view of the battles as best as they could be reported.

    7. This is the single best book on the American Revolutionary War that I have ever read. In terms of its treatment of the battles, their effects, the strategies in play, and the consequences of those decisions, you cannot get better than this. Highly recommend.

    8. A well-written and readable treatment of the revolutionary war’s land campaigns. The book is almost a thousand pages long, so it is nothing if not thorough. Ward gives us clear treatment of all the war’s battles. Ward is concerned primarily with the war’s land campaigns; naval operations receive only passing mention.The book’s style is a bit romantic, but, again, this was written in 1952. Still, Ward writes simply and eloquently. Ward’s attention to detail is smooth and crisp. The scop [...]
