A masterful account

by Freddy on Jul 20, 2007

A masterful account of how the French navy and her troops won America for the Americans, bankrupting herself in so doing and bringing about a disastrous revolution to France, thereby enabling England to win herself an Empire and France of losing the opportunity of doing so, precisely the opposite result to that which lay in the motive for aiding the Americans in the first place.

Another great piece from Barbara Tuchman on American History and the incredible folly of the British high command. Unfortunately General George Washington is no longer available nowadays....

How the American colonies became a country...

by spad17 on Apr 1, 2007

This was a great overview of the birth of a nation,focusing on the economic dynamics at play and the forces they applied to the politics of the eighteenth century.The book was pretty in depth at times,making the timeline a little hard to follow,yet what emerges is a complete view of the major players,their motives for and contributions to the creation of a new nation.The historical relationships of the European nations are revealed and presented as the table from which this creation is served.The treatment of the British is a lesson in how a politically divided nation,no matter how militarily superior,is susceptible to defeat.Details of the specific events,as told,are a riveting read,making this contribution to the history of our nation well worth your time and effort.
