Description

From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell—one of the greatest yet little-known skirmishes of the Revolution: the Penobscot Expedition, a battle that would reveal the true character of a legendary Revolutionary hero.

This new novel takes place during the very early days of the rebellion, or the War of Independence, in 18th century Massachusetts before Washington and before the organization of a colonial army. A small British fleet with a few soldiers on board had sailed in to be met, to their surprise, with an overwhelming strength of local militia.

Cornwell tells the story on both sides of the conflict, based largely on real figures, including of course Paul Revere (famous from the much later poem).

    A quality book as would be expected from Cornwell. A little light on the action but nonetheless an interesting read.

    KIm not usually a fan of American history, though I live in Virginia where much of it was made. When a saw a new book by Bernard Cornwell I picked it up without really knowing what I was going to be reading, but I was fantastic! He shares so many historical facts with a great fictional story to make it fun to read,and the whole ,y through my only complaint was that iBooks makes it so difficult to skip to the end to read the historical notes... By page 100 my curiosity about Paul Revere's history was incredibly piqued, and I'm glad I just finished and got to learn what the truth is!
