When the first shots were fired at Lexington and Concord, the American colonists had a slim chance, if any, of militarily defeating the British. The nascent American nation had no navy, little in the way of artillery, and a militia bereft even of gunpowder. In his detailed accounts, Larrie Ferreiro shows that without the extensive military and financial support of the French and Spanish, the American cause would never have succeeded.

Ferreiro adds to the historical record the names of French and Spanish diplomats, merchants, soldiers, and sailors whose contributions are at last given recognition. Instead of viewing the American Revolution in isolation, Brothers at Arms reveals the birth of the American nation as the centerpiece of an international coalition fighting against a common enemy.
