I thought this was really enjoyable for a variety of reasons -- it's clearly well-researched, yet Vowell has a very light tough, and it's laugh-out-loud funny at times. It also feels highly relevant, which is impressive considering its subject is over 200 years old. If you want a thorough understanding of the minutiae of the Revolutionary War, look elsewhere, but if you want an extremely funny, intriguing look at France's role in the revolution and America's at times thorny relationship with the French over the course of its history, try this book.
