This book is nearly a mirror of George F. Scheer and Hugh F. Rankin's Rebels and Redcoats. The major difference is that Hibbert employs British recollections and primary sources for his book, rather than American sources as Scheer and Rankin do. When I started reading the book, I expected a pro-British, anti-American voice from the book, but that was not the case, it was very objective and describing events from the British perspective was interesting. It is a sweeping overview of the entire war highlighted by comments from a British perspective.
