Book Review Blurb: Revolutionary Brothers by Tom Chaffin

My father is the American history fanatic in our family; I’m a bit of a dilettante. I enjoy gathering bits of knowledge and fun facts from different eras, but don’t (typically) read to an obsessive level of detail. I prefer reading the stories behind important people and events to a recitation of the detailed facts of each. As such, this one both hit the mark for me and shot to the left of center. On one hand, it’s relatively brief (for non-fiction history) and offers a solid look at two very important men in our history without spending 100 pages describing their favorite breakfast foods or how they cut their toenails. On the other, the story behind their relationship isn’t a huge part of the book, and that felt odd to me given how it was billed and titled. There are solid biographies here, at a level of detail I found appropriate, but not as much story-behind-the-story as I was hoping to see…

My review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley. The title releases in the U.S. on November 26, 2019.
