Winning Independence: The Decisive Years of the Revolutionary War, 1778–1781

Ferling’s lengthy, comprehensive, and essential work has staying power and should become one of the leading resources on the Revolutionary War.

Apostles of Revolution: Jefferson, Paine, Monroe, and the Struggle Against the Old Order in America and Europe

This compelling narrative will appeal to both scholarly and popular 18th-century history enthusiasts as well as those who value representative government.

Whirlwind: The American Revolution and the War That Won It

Ferling has created another accessible yet scholarly work on the American Revolution. While its primary appeal is to history buffs, academics looking for an introductory survey history should also find this work useful.

Jefferson and Hamilton: The Rivalry That Forged a Nation

With his descriptions of the intense ideological and political climate of the nation's early years, Ferling provides valuable perspective not only on the Founding Fathers and their accomplishments but, overtly, on today, when fierce differences divide people who say they are seeking to preserve their nation and its values. Highly recommended.


Unfortunately, Ferling provides nothing new to American revolutionary period scholarship in this minor but entertaining work. His readable narrative should appeal to general readers or students new to the topic of how and why the British colonies declared themselves American states.
