Description - Those Damned Rebels by Michael Pearson

A re-creation of the American Revolution from the British point of view --and a dramatically different picture of the birth of our nation.. Using firsthand accountsjournals, letters from British officers in the field, reports from colonial governors in the coloniesMichael Pearson has provided a contemporary report of the Revolution as the British witnessed it. Seen from this perspective, some of the major events of the war are given startling interpretations: For example, the British considered their defeat at Bunker Hill nothing more than a minor setback, especially in light of their capture of New York and Philadelphia. Only at the very end of the conflict did they realize that the Yankees had lost the battles but won the war. From the Boston Tea Party to that day in 1785 when the first U.S. ambassador presented his credentials to a grudging George III, here is the full account of "those damned rebels" who somehow managed to found a new nation.
