Honestly, I thought it would be a book. Instead it's a collector's edition magazine with excerpts or articles by people who have written books on the subjects surrounding the American Revolution. A sort of cliff notes of the American Revolution.

All that said it wasn't a bad magazine. The stories in it were interesting from the section on debunking American Revolution myths, like that Paul Revere was a solo rider who had single handedly saved the rebels with his lanterns (he wasn't, and he got caught while the other two riders got away). To interesting stuff on the Kentucky RIfle and a submarine called 'The Turtle'.

It was a solid place for people who know nothing about the American Revolution, and a nice refresher for those who know about it already. ( )
