Very well written. What I found interesting was how much of this I had learned about as a younger man through the historical fiction of Kenneth Roberts' Oliver Wiswell, a fictional account of the Revolution as seen through the eyes of a Loyalist. The brutality is a revelation for those who have a view of America's birth as something prosaic and noble. Great lesson; nothing like the birth of a country is clean and neat and someone always gets hurt. Those arguing for war should be required to read history such as this. It might make them think.

Provides a good summary of what the Loyalists and those who opposed the Revolution had to endure. A worthwhile read to find out about this lesser known aspect of the Rev War. Not a comprehensive book however, and not recommended if you don't have a basic background of the Rev War.
