Get the Ebook and audiobook of Great Battles for Boys: The American Revolution, read by acclaimed voice actor Jake Phillips.
From Concord and Lexington to Brandywine and Yorktown, Great Battles for Boys: The American Revolution takes young readers to the front lines of the stunning battles where ragtag colonists took on the world’s mightiest military — the British Imperial Army, otherwise known as the Red Coats—and won!
History leaps off the page and captures even reluctant readers as early colonial protests, such as the Boston Tea Party, bring even more tyranny from King George III. With a declaration of war from England and the appointment of George Washington as commander of the Continental Army, the revolution’s real battles begin.
In chronological order, Great Battles for Boys: The American Revolution takes young readers to the front lines of the war's major clashes such as:
Long Island: British General Howe crushes Washington’s forces and proves the odds are against the Patriot forces.
Battle of Trenton: Washington’s stunning reversal following his famous Christmas Eve “crossing the Delaware.”
Valley Forge: Starving, broke, and battle-weary, the Continental Army hunkers down in Pennsylvania for a long cold winter — and emerges as an entirely different fighting force.
Cowpens: The southern clash where Daniel Morgan’s tactics brilliantly outsmart his enemy.
Yorktown: Washington’s unyielding attack victoriously ends eight long years of suffering — and win liberty for the colonies.
Each chapter alsoprofiles the Revolution’s most fascinating leaders — Benedict Arnold, Lafayette, Francis Marion, Henry Knox —and discusses the era's complicated politics, including slavery.
This action-packed book will teach your son the foundational and aspirational ideas that are woven into the United States of America— such as life, liberty, and justice for all—and how those principles were won by the brave men and women who risked everything to defeat tyranny.
After reading Great Battles for Boys: The American Revolution, your son will know exactly what it means when someone says, “Freedom isn’t free."
