The soldiers of the Revolutionary War (1775-1783)-the American Yankee Doodles and the British Redcoats-had countless stories to tell. Using excerpts from soldiers' diaries and letters home, author Susan Provost Beller brings the daily struggles of the Revolutionary War soldiers to life with first-person accounts of battles, as well as commentary about camp life, weather, food, and equipment. As the war dragged on, the soldiers lamented disease and death and the hardships as prisoners of war. These accounts give us a better understanding of the sacrifices made during the birth of our country.
