Additional Information

The must-have companion to Bill O'Reilly's historical docudrama Legends and Lies: The Patriots, an exciting and eye-opening look at the Revolutionary War through the lives of its leaders

The American Revolution was neither inevitable nor a unanimous cause. It pitted neighbors against each other, as loyalists and colonial rebels faced off for their lives and futures. These were the times that tried men's souls: no one was on stable ground and few could be trusted. Through the fascinating tales of the first Americans, Legends and Lies: The Patriots reveals the contentious arguments that turned friends into foes and the country into a warzone.

From the riots over a child's murder that led to the Boston Massacre to the suspicious return of Ben Franklin, the "First American;" from the Continental Army's first victory under George Washington's leadership to the little known southern Guerilla campaign of "Swamp Fox" Francis Marion, and the celebration of America's first Christmas, The Patriots recreates the amazing combination of resourcefulness, perseverance, strategy, and luck that led to this country's creation.

Heavily illustrated with spectacular artwork that brings this important history to vivid life, and told in the same fast-paced, immersive narrative as the first Legends and Lies, The Patriots is an irresistible, adventure-packed journey back into one of the most storied moments of our nation's rich history.

I love this book! Each chapter features a different founding father. With various historical events, the author skillfully weaves a biographical sketch of each founding father. This is not a dry, technical recount. Rather, the author provides interesting anecdotes and clear explanations of why the colonials responded to various British intrusions. Descriptions of battles are thorough and engaging. Also, the author gives a close-up view of the founders' interactions with each other. Until reading this book, I never knew that their signing the Declaration of Independence required bravery because it was essentially equivalent to signing a death warrant!

When someone can't put a book down, it's usually a suspense novel or murder mystery. This history book was difficult for me to put down. (Housework be damned! I had to keep reading this book -- ha, ha!)
This book will surely be greatly criticized (as, I suspect, will any positive reviews of it) by those who despise Bill O'Reilly. Yes, his name is attached to it and he introduces it, but all the rest is by David Fisher. The book is actually quite engaging and informative (no matter who wrote it), and though I am not an historian, I found nothing in it of a substantive nature to find fault with. It's not a "heavy" or tedious, scholarly tome meant for a select few; rather, it entertainingly informs and enlightens the general reading-public, for whom it was intended, thus proving suitable for youngsters as well as adults. The book will remind some older readers of the type of U.S. history once taught in public schools at a time before it became unfashionable and politically-incorrect to be unabashedly patriotic and not denigrate or vilify historical personages for not embracing "enlightened" 21st century sensibilities. As an honest, objective look at history, this book... Read more
Very worthwhile introduction to the Revolutionary War period.
After reading this, you may want to pick up some books by Joseph J. Ellis related to the same historical period.
