" This piece of work is a must for any serious student of the Revolutionary War. Gavin Watt is one of the foremost writers and experts on the important contributions of the Loyalists who supported the Crown in the war. No Rev War library will be complete without this and volume two which is due to be published shortly. Three cheers for Mr. Watt: Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!" -- Rolland Minor, New York State
