Praise for Born in Battle:
"A highly effective antidote to oversimplified ideas about the Revolution–and an uncommonly interesting, involving, fun antidote, at that.... Easy and fun to navigate, articulately and engagingly expressed, attractively designed, this product will be a welcome addition to any history buff's or public or school library collection."
