While I did enjoy what was essentially a survey of the military conflicts of the Revolutionary War, I was not as impressed by this book as most reviewers. I never felt a real connection to the group of "Immortals" from Maryland that the book followed throughout the War. Most of the book was simply about the battles, and I have read about those in many other places. If someone is just starting to read about the military side of the War, I think this book would be a great place to start. But I felt there was not a lot new here for people versed in the history.
