Liberty! brings to life one of the most important and compelling stories in America's history: the struggle for independence and the birth of the nation. New York Times bestselling historian Thomas Fleming's gripping narrative captures the high drama of the revolutionary war years and the unyielding courage and political genius of the men and women who imagined a new set of political possibilities for humankind - laying the foundation for the identity and character of the American people in the process. The companion volume to the PBS television series of the same name, Liberty! traces the evolution of the ideals that inspired a generation of Americans to struggle against Britain - then the most powerful country in the world - to establish the free society and democratic system that is so inherently and uniquely American.

Book That Accompanies the PBS Series In this book, New York Times bestselling author Thomas Fleming tells the dramatic story of the American Revolution. It's a book filled with facts I didn't know. The revolution wasn't so much a war America won as a war Britain lost. Also, I was surprised by how much the Founding Fathers opposed the idea of a standing army, something we forget today. Highly recommended.

I really liked this book. Matter of fact, it is probably one of the best books I have read in a long time. Who would have thought a history book could be a real page turner, but that describes this book perfectly. I just had to know what would happen next. It still amazes me that we were able to gain our independence from Great Britain and form our own government. And it struck me as ironic that the Congress during the time of our independence was not much different than Congress today - they, too, focused on internal feuds rather than the bigger picture.

The coffee-table revolution... an overly broad narrative but many vivid illustratins, famous and contemporary, with over half in color. Not very useful as a history, but inspiring anyway.

Wonderfully told saga of the Revolutionary War. This book has everything -- the honest-to-god process of tarring and feathering a person to the political intrigues of the day. It really brought history alive and was a wonderful resource for my kids in their history classes.

Nothing all that new here. Seemed as though it was aimed at middle-schoolers

A very good telling of the founding of our country.
