Praise

“A feisty, fearless, edgy book, blissfully bereft of academic jargon, propelled by the energy of an author with the bit in his teeth.”–The New York Times Book Review

“In his amassing of mountains of facts from numerous monographs, Phillips has tried to do what most academic historians these days have not been much interested in doing—bring together all the meticulous research that has been going on for decades and turn it into a comprehensive and readable book designed for general readers. Much of what Phillips has written is clear and free of jargon. His assessments of the various military situations, especially those faced by the British, are always realistically based, and his judgments of what was possible and what was not possible for the British to do are always sound.”–The New York Review of Books

“Enthralling.”–Publishers Weekly (starred, boxed review)

“Impressively authoritative…[A] deeply researched, meticulously argued, multidimensional history.”–Kirkus (starred review)

“A solid, well-argued, and informative re-examination of our beginnings as a nation-state.”–Booklist
