  • Great book and tells about many battles and the people in important sieges and battles. It is a great resource for our LA. Read it in class if you want to ace everything.


  • This book took us quite a while to read because we'd stop and read another book about a topic mentioned. For example, when they gave a sentence or two on Henry Knox and the campaign to bring the cannons from Ticonderoga, we stopped and read Guns for Washington. When we hit Valley Forge in this book, we stopped and read Winter at Valley Forge.Liberty or Death gives a good, basic introduction to the Revolutionary War. It moves fairly quickly in order to cover everything and fit it into a children' [...]


  • A good book about the American Revolution that is easily accessible for younger readers. I purchased it as preparation for my literature unit on the American Revolutionary War. This gives an account of the events between 1763 - 1783 that led up to the war, and the events that transpired in order to end it. It also includes information about lesser known men and women and events. Students interested in this time period should enjoy this book, and for teachers who need to teach a similar unit, thi [...]


  • This book provided a quick overview of the Revolutionary War (60+ pages) in terms for upper elementary through junior high students (and not-so-sharp teachers teaching a Revolutionary War novel). It included many familiar war phrases we here, but place them in context (eg: don't fire until you see "the whites of their eyes" or "give me liberty or give me death"). Includes illustrations and maps.


  • Finally a historical young adult book that has maps to refer to --Yeah!The maps helped me to figure out what was going on a a time when communication was slow. Since I grew up on the west coast, I did not fully understand the geography of some of the events.The illustrations helped me to understand and visualize what was going on during that time period. Instead of text books, I think this type of book would have been wonderful.


  • This book gave a good, basic introduction to the Revolutionary War. We used it more as a spine to learning about the Revolutionary War and would pause reading it to delve deeper into a subject the kids were interested in. The illustrations are great with maps to help you understand where things were taking place. For younger kids, this might be all you need. For my older son, it was just the beginning


  • Betsy Maestro's book about the American Revolution ably ties together the myriad events and personalities that led to the formation of our nation. I am pretty sure that my kids, after we read the book together, gained a much stronger understanding not only of the ups-and-downs experienced by the Patriots, but also the ways in which British error, superb American generalship by George Washington, and, sometimes, luck helped the American cause.


  • I strongly feel that the authors of Liberty or Death present the historical facts in a comprehensible and intriguing way. I feel that the authors touch upon the most vital historical information necessary for young children to learn about the of 16th century.


  • I love the Maestro's history books for younger children. This book is especially good at explaining the events of the Revolution in a clear and interesting way. I recently used this to fill in some details missing from Joy Hakim's book.


  • This is pretty much a text book retelling of the Revolutionary war, with troop movements, alliances, strategies and everything else that goes into a war.



  • Great descriptions of people in the American Revolution. I will use this as a nonfiction trade book for my thematic unit.


  • After reading this book, I finally understand the American Revolution! I knew most of the events, but after reading this, it helped immensely with understanding the chronological order. Great book.


  • Not sure what this was trying to be, but it wasn't great. Too many words for the pictures that were clearly aimed at a younger audience, skips over crazy important details.


  • We are using Maestro's books this year to learn about American History. This book has a lot of information and wonderful illustrations and maps to refer to.
