A short but fairly comprehensive history of the Revolutionary War. Very objective, spends a little effort to gain both the colonial and the British perspective and struggles. Large print text and many muted, colorful illustrations, also some photographs, make this book easy to read. I can see it being of great use to a second or third grader needing a book for a report. It is not boring and also not gruesome; age appropriate. Includes a short bibliography of books and online resources and a small glossary.
