George vs. George: The American Revolution As Seen from Both Sides

Customer Reviews:

Interesting text, Wonderful illustrations

By J. Grufman - January 3, 2005

We read this book as part of my son's studies of the American Revolution. In all honesty, until he began these studies, I'd never given much thought to George Washington - now I find myself fascinated by this man's character. While I've graduated to adult literature about our first President, I continue to read my son's books, as well. As this title suggests, the author attempts to present facts (drawn from historical documents) about the Revolutionary War, George Washington and King George III and to demonstrate the two men's reasoning behind the decisions they made and draw parallels between them. I got the feeling that she really wants us to "like" George III, because, according to her research, a majority of Britains did, and he wasn't really a "tyrant". She indicates that while our Declaration of Independence puts all the blame on George III, it was really Great Britain's Parliament that was to blame. George III never meant to harm anyone. Hmmmm.

George v George, a useful book

By E. Russell - June 5, 2010

Agree with the many positive reviews about this book. I found the illustrations to be exceptional. The text offered clear descriptions of history, but it is up to the reader to interpret to which side the statements should be attributed. Could be confusing for some younger readers. The true descriptions of the tragedy of war (including rape and cannibalism) are mentioned but not elaborated upon in the next, so ensure that your reader is ready for that information. I enjoyed the book and will read selections from it with my 8 year old. And will read it in full with my older children.

Great Rev War book for kids

By History Lover - January 9, 2007

Beautifully illustrated book on Revolutionary War that helps explain the war by comparing George Washington and King George III. Accurate information, clearly expressed in readable prose with a good story line. Humorous and very colorful artwork is very appealing. My grandsons, ages 8 and 10, loved it, and so did I. Highly recommend this book, especially if your children are turned off by "history."
