Dtar's Thoughts: To paraphrase the further study section at the back of the book, experiencing history from different perspectives gives a broader sense of it. The role playing aspect of the game book also helps to make the subject more personal and more real for the reader. One very interesting part of the book gives the reader the option to fight on either side of a battle between loyalist and patriot militia. Both choices bring the reader to encounter one of your relatives who is fighting for the other side. A pretty meaningful experience for the reader.

It might be interesting to read the earlier book You Choose: Interactive History Adventures: The Battle of Bunker Hill to compare it to this one.
