"Freedom isn't free!" 

Great Battles for Boys: The American Revolution travels to the front lines of the most stunning battles between the ragtag American colonists and the mightiest military force in the world—the British Imperial Army.

Boys learn about the battles, tactics, strategies, and leaders that won that fight and birthed the United States of America.

From Concord and Lexington to Brandywine and Yorktown, American history leaps off the page and captures the imagination of even the most reluctant reader.

"Amazing! ... Great perspective of the American Revolution." 5 Stars Lauren

Boys will learn about the colonial tyranny of King George III, the appointment of George Washington as commander of the Continental Army, and the creation of the Declaration of Independence.

"My 9yo son had been hoping that Joe Giorello would write this book! He is already halfway through reading it and said, “It’s really good, mom.” It would be a great supplement to any American Revolution study or just a great free read or read aloud." 5 stars GT Family

In chronological order, young readers move to the front lines of the Revolutionary War's major clashes, including:

  • Battle of Long Island: British General Howe crushes Washington’s forces and proves the odds are definitely against the Patriot forces.

  • Battle of Trenton: Washington’s stunning reversal after 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.

  • Battle of Cowpens: The southern clash where Daniel Morgan’s brilliant tactics outsmart his enemy.

  • Battle of Yorktown: Washington’s unyielding attack that ends eight long years of suffering — and wins liberty for the colonies.

Each chapter also profiles the Revolution’s most fascinating leaders -- Benedict Arnold, Lafayette, Francis Marion, Henry Knox —and discusses the era's complicated politics, including the role of colonial women and slavery.
