Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A look at American independence from the British side, drawing on personal correspondence, political memoranda, and other primary sources to show how Britain--at the height of its powers but suffering from internal strife--made mistake after mistake and lost its prized colonies. The author, a longtime journalist, takes a narrative rather than a scholarly approach to the events and personalities of the era. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Maps of The thirteen colonies on endpapers.

Includes bibliographical references (p. [397]-401) and index.
