Rebels & Redcoats
How Britain Lost America

Rebels & Redcoats (2004) - 240 minutes
Rebels & Redcoats at Amazon.com

With vivid dramatizations of battles, eyewitness accounts, original documents and paintings, Rebels & Redcoats tells the untold story of the American Revolution.

Richard Holmes, a renowned British military historian, presents the series. He focuses on the military struggle - on the soldiers, the leaders, the tactics and the strategy of this grand conflict. It is told from an unusual point of view, that of the British losers. Yet it also explores painful conflicts within the American people themselves. It tells of the bitter disappointments of black slaves in the south, promised freedom by the British. And it takes us inside the vicious struggles of brothers, friends, and families forced to choose sides between loyalist and rebels.

The series traces the ups and downs of this from the beginning of the insurrection in Boston, to the surrender of the British forces to General George Washington in Yorktown, Virginia. It puts the war in the context of the world events that so affected its outcome, and that helped to put a new powerful player, the United States on the world map.
