The topography of the United States has changed so much since 1776 it is almost impossible to visualize the landscape of the battlefields of the American Revolution using modern maps. This atlas is divided into sections about the major battles. Each section includes a detailed map and a text explanation of the action, including who was in charge on both sides, what their strategy was, where their plans went wrong, how many men were involved, and how they were positioned. Numbers in the text indicate exactly were to look on the map to follow the movements of troops as the battle progressed.

Although I have no military experience I was able to follow and understand what occurred. I never imagined that accounts of battles could keep me reading late into the night, but following the action as Major General Nathanael Greene and Major General Lord Cornwallis chased each other back and forth across the Carolinas was very exciting. I found the book so interesting and helpful that I purchased a copy to have as a reference as I continue reading about the American Revolution.
