Whirlwind: The American Revolution and the War that Won It


I received a prerelease e-copy of this book through NetGalley (publication date May 5, 2015) with the expectation that I will post a review on their site and others (my blog, Goodreads, Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn, Twitter, Amazon, etc.).

I requested this book as I am an avid of United States history including several on the Revolutionary War. I have read several books by John Ferling.

This is a well written and researched book that is an enjoyable read as many of the other books written by this author. While there is not much new in this book to a comprehensive reader of the Revolutionary War, it is presented in a logical, straight forward style. It covers the events leading up to the War starting with the conclusion of the French and Indian War and ends with the establishment of the United States of America.

This book will be particularly enlightening to those who have not read much about the Revolutionary War or the main players in the events surrounding it. It will also resonate with those who have extensively read about the time period due to its exhaustive research and Ferling’s easy to read style.
