Description: Tuchman turns to America with a fresh new view of the events that led from the first foreign salute to the American Nationhood in 1776 to the last campaign of the Revolution five years later--the moment that inaugurated the existence of a new nation, and announced the coming of a democratic age to the Old World. 8 pages of color, 8 pages of photos, 7 maps. ""From Publishers Weekly: """"In this brilliant slice of American Revolutionary history, Tuchman ( A Distant Mirror; The Guns of August ) pits the 13 colonies against a rogues' gallery of British fools, """" wrote PW of this bestseller in cloth. """"Expertly weaving political and military history, Tuchman lets you feel how Washington's victory at Yorktown sent shock waves around the globe."""" Photos. Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc."" ""From Library Journal: Tuchman's trademarks are here: trenchant observations and an exciting climax, in this case when Washington and Corwallis meet at Yorktown. But this work is not her best. The narration is loosely structured and at times repetitious; the chronology is sometimes confusing. In her first venture into American history, the popular historian highlights military and diplomatic turning points of the Revolution, focusing on European participation and its impact on the politics of the Dutch, French, and English. Despite its drawbacks, most libraries will want this Pulitzer Prize-winner's latest. BOMC main selection. Nancy C. Cridland, Indiana Univ.
