The American Revolution has been characterized politically as a
united uprising of the American colonies and militarily within a
guerrilla campaign against the inflexible British military
establishment. Author Daniel Marston argues that this belief,
though widespread, is a misconception. He contends that the
American Revolution created deep political divisions in the
population of the Thirteen Colonies, while militarily pitting
veterans of the Seven Years War against one another, in a conflict
that involved guerrilla tactics and classic eighteenth century
campaign techniques on both sides. The peace treaty of 1783 that
brought an end to war marked the formal beginning of the United
States of America as an independent political entity. This
groundbreaking, richly detailed, lavishly illustrated, and
surprising history of the American Revolution tells the story in
fresh and revelatory ways, encompassing political, strategic,
tactical, cultural, and individual perspectives.
