Summary
Boston in 1775 is an island city, occupied by British troops after a series of incendiary incidents by patriots ranging from sober citizens to thuggish vigilantes. Following the infamous Boston Tea Party, British and American soldiers and locals warily manoeuvered around each other until 19 April, when violence suddenly erupted at Lexington and Concord. Then in June, with the city cut off by the British and the American militia braced for a siege, brief skirmishes gave way to outright war in the Battle of Bunker Hill. Nathaniel Philbrick brings a fresh perspective to this momentous story, unearthing new characters and finding new sides to familar ones
