Synopsis

Two hundred and forty years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States, the story of how America overthrew the British is as meaningful today as it was when the ink was still wet on the document.There are lavishly illustrated accounts of every major military action, many supported by maps, with comprehensive timelines for every stage of the Revolutionary War. Including revealing first-person accounts by soldiers and civilians. Plus features on broader topics such as the treatment of prisoners, and what the wars meant for women, Native Americans and African Americans.The American War of Independence: A Visual History brings the drama of the Revolutionary War to life with DK's unique visual approach and compelling narrative.

Published in association with the Smithsonian Institution, The American War of Independence brings the expertise and insights of scholars at the world's largest museum and research complex - including the National Museum of American History (armed Forces Division) - to your fingertips. Contributors: James C. Bradford, R.G. Grant, Jeremy Harwood, David Hatt, Mark Collins Jenkins, Paul D. Lockhart, John J. Patterson VI, James Piecuch, John Ruddiman and James C. Scudieri.
