"Told through the eyes of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Great Britain's King George III, Killing England chronicles the path to independence from the battlefields of America to the royal courts of Europe. What started as protest and unrest in the colonies soon escalated to a world war. Landmark battles reveal the savagery of hand-to-hand combat and the often brutal conditions under which the American soldiers lived and fought. Also here is the treachery of Benedict Arnold and the guerrilla tactics of the 'Swamp Fox" Francis Marion.'--Page 4 of cover.

This book, like all of those in the Killing series, should be required reading in all high schools. I have been amazed and saddened after reading all of these, why school kids have been never taught real and important history. It is truly a shame how those who have set the curricula of our schools have done so with an axe to grind or their own agenda to spin.

Anyway, better late than never. I encourage all to read this series and pass it onto the ones you love and the ones who should also know real American history, like everyone!

Rather bland, but with a few nuggets, especially found in the foot notes. The chapter and emotion generated in the Valley Forge and Morristown narratives really paint the price Continental solders paid for America's -' your and my -- freedom. All of us need to think about this today, as that very freedom is coming under serious attack.
