Samuel B. Griffith
Publisher: University of Illinois PressFormat: Paperback
“Including both attention to strategic policies in Britain and France and personal accounts of colonial soldiers, ”The War for American Independence“ provides an unprecedented view of America's struggle for independence in its world context. With wit, clarity, and dramatic effect, Samuel B. Griffith II vivifies the characters and incidents of the period on both sides of the Atlantic, drawing from personal diaries and letters, newspaper accounts, and detailed battle maps to create a unique alternative to standard histories of the period. This enduring and exceptionally readable resource, first published in 1976 under the title ”In Defense of the Public Liberty: Britain, America, and the Struggle for Independence from 1760 to the Surrender at Yorktown in 1781“, was honored with the Sons of Liberty Award for the best book on the American Revolution.”
