    Outstanding Overview I have always know the story of the founding of America based on what I was taught in school. But, I never knew what I didn't know. I knew that other powers beyond the English had colonies in North America but I never realized how that all played together until I read this book. If you are interested in the history of America beyond what you have always been taught then this book is for you. It provides a view of what all the countries were doing throughout the colonization eff Outstanding Overview I have always know the story of the founding of America based on what I was taught in school. But, I never knew what I didn't know. I knew that other powers beyond the English had colonies in North America but I never realized how that all played together until I read this book. If you are interested in the history of America beyond what you have always been taught then this book is for you. It provides a view of what all the countries were doing throughout the colonization efforts in North America and how that worked through the conflicts to shape what the continent became to be by 1783. It gives that 10,000 foot view of all the players without too much detail and getting bogged down in the minutia. It is a very readable book. It flows through the centuries and shows what everyone was doing and how that affected each other's colonies. It was interesting and important to learn how France interacted with Spain and Spain with England and England with France and the Dutch were in there too. And how the politics and conflicts framed the interactions in the colonies. And how a backwater conflict between France and England in America triggered a world war (The Seven Years War). If you love colonial history, then you have to read this.

    I wanted to learn what was happening in the world at the time of the American Revolution and how those events affected the Americans. This book did a very good job of setting the picture for me. It also provided a good idea of the introduction of the European colonists on the native indigenous tribes. It tended to bog down a bit, especially when describing actions of the Spanish colonials in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. However, I prefer a little too much information over too little.

In summary: this book provided tons of information. Sometimes it was a bit difficult to plow through the details, but it enhanced my understanding of the events leading up to the American Revolution. well worth the read.

    So many conflicts over the Americas! Did not realize so many countries fought territories in North America . Also didn't realize that our Navy was involved in many conflicts with the British in the islands . Great book history classes and schools should read it . So many conflicts over the Americas!
