Finally, a well written, easy to follow, informative, fresh look at the War for Independence...not overly detailed...to the point and not a bunch of superflous words! (This history book sounds readable, even to me, a fiction lover)
REVOLUTIONARY SUMMER by Pulitzer Prize Winner, Joseph J. Ellis fills in the blanks that other books on the American Revolution cover briefly.
Check my blog for an upcoming review from Gary S, an American Revolution specialist. In the meantime, buy it from Amazon directly from this blog and settle in for an engrossing account of history that any reader would enjoy.

HERE ARE HIS COMMENTS:
I’ve only read very little, but if it remains at the current pace, I’m going to give it a thumbs down. Too much trash talk and it never lets up.
Trash talk can be fun, so I’ll stick with it for awhile. The book has gotten a lot of buzz, and I love the current events/politics story line......
......It’s entertaining but not satisfying. Maybe that’s what Washington DC is all about anyway. Will keep at it and keep you posted. I think the author is a still a journalist for the NY Times, so not sure why he would write such a tell all mockery of the people he needs access to. HHmmm.
