Enjoy this Grateful American™ reading recommendation!
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Andrew O’Shaughnessy, Saunders Director of the Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies at Monticello:
- The War for America, 1775-1783 by Piers Mackesy. Says military historian and professor emeritus John W. Shy, “Mackesy’s War for America still stands as the classic account of the British conduct of the American Revolutionary War. Based on extensive research in British archives, it embodies the mature judgments of a masterful military historian.”
