From Yorktown to Valmy: The Transformation of the French Army in an Age of Revolution. Anyone wanting to understand how the rag-tag, disorganized French Army became a formidable force must read Lynn's book. Soldiers of the French Revolution (Bicentennial Reflections on the French Revolution).

French involvement in the American Revolutionary War began in 1775, when France, a rival of the British Empire, secretly shipped supplies to the Continental Army. A Treaty of Alliance followed in 1778, which led to shipments of money and matériel to the United States. Subsequently, the Spanish Empire and the Dutch Republic also began to send assistance, leaving the British Empire with no allies (excluding the Hessians). Spain openly declared war but the Dutch did not.

American Revolution (1775–83), insurrection by which 13 of Great Britain’s North American colonies won political independence and went on to form the United States of America. The war followed more than a decade of growing estrangement between the British crown and many North American colonists. What were the major causes of the American Revolution? The American Revolution was principally caused by colonial opposition to British attempts to impose greater control over the colonies and to make them repay the crown for its defense of them during the French and Indian War (1754–63).

I'm a Russian Occupant
This academic study focuses on Rochambeau's expeditionary corps sent to America in 1778; the first half deals with the war in America and the second half with the impact of the French Revolution on the units when they returned to France. It is apparent that the corps was a hand-picked force by the standard of the day, and it performed well in America. Unfortunately, Scott does not spend much time detailing the French combat performance at Yorktown. Back in France, the units stuck together better than most during the Revolution, but eventually blended into the melting pot. No maps.
THOMAS
The main goal of this work, according to the author, is to
"improve the understanding of the closely related phenomena of
revolution and war in the late eighteenth century". This he
certainly achieves as he examines this historical period
through the eyes of the 6,500 officers and men who served in
the French Expeditionary Force under Rochambeau during the
American Revolution. He follows their journey to America,
their service in the American Revolutionary War, their return
to France, the years of peace and their involvement in yet
another revolution: their own.
Scott's exhaustive research allows him to enrich this
historical work with details of the lives of such real people
as Francois Gogue, a drummer boy in the Regiment of Soissonnais
Infantry who died at age thirteen in the French Military
Hospital at Providence, Rhode Island; Gabriel de Queyssat, a
Protestant nobleman who served in both revolutions and reached
the rank of brigadier general, was imprisoned then released
and died at the age of ninety-four; Alexis Morge, a former
wigmaker who took twenty years to reach the rank of corporal
and was killed, after twenty campaigns and five sieges, by
an accidental musket shot in peacetime; and many others.
Scott uses the experiences of these ordinary, obscure
individuals from all walks of life to lend a human dimension
to the historical time he investigates.
In his preface, Sam Scott says "I am unwilling to let these
human beings fade into historical generalities or statistics."
Besides illuminating the very complex social and political
issues extant between France and America at the time, Scott
provides convincing evidence that the political connection
between the revolutions of America and France was tenuous at
best.
Samuel Scott, a history professor at Wayne State University,
is author of "The Response of the Royal Army to the French
Revolution" and "Historical Dictionary if the French revolution".
