Secondary Sources--articles in History journals
Historical Abstracts (Will offer only European Perspective on the American Revolution)
Historical Abstracts™ is an exceptional resource that covers the history of the world (excluding the United States and Canada) from 1450 to the present, including world history, military history, women's history, history of education, and more - essential for libraries supporting upper-division and graduate research.
(This might be a good place to keyword search American Revolution anyway though to get a European perspective)
