Any Suggestions For Good Revolutionary War Book?

Thu Nov 23, 2006 2:45 pm

Hi all,

I've been in the mood to read a good book about the history of the Revolutionary War and that general time period...Does anybody have suggestions of something they read and enjoyed?

Thanks.

1776 by David McCullough. Gave a good historical perspective to the war and the basic politcal clime. At the same time I was reading Benjamin Franklin: An American Life, by Walter Isaacson. It complimented 1776 very nicely.
