Revolutionary War history

Can anyone recommend a good overall history of the Revolution, along the lines of Battle Cry of Freedom for the Civil War?

Sorry, this is not an answer to your question.

However, as a preface to the Revolution in general, read,

Common Sense by Thomas Paine.

I got a nice little hard-bound edition printed by Barnes and Noble for their stores. Even with a 15pg. introduction, it's only about 80 pages long. I'm going to re-read now, since there's so much MEAT contained there.;P

Powerful stuff.;z

If you like mixing fiction with history, the entire series by Kennth Roberts is highly recommended:

Rabble in Arms
Northwest Passage
Captain Caution
The Lively Lady
Oliver Wiswell
Lydia Bailey

I read a book called "George Washington's War" which was a good overall view of the war.
“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”Heraclitus
