The British Are Coming : The War For America, Lexington To Princeton, 1775-1777

Author(s): Rick Atkinson
From the battles at Lexington and Concord in spring 1775 to those at Trenton and Princeton in winter 1777, the ragtag Continental Army took on the world's most formidable fighting force. Atkinson introduces us to the war for America, and shows it is populated by astonishing characters who were heroes and knaves, who made sacrifices and blunders. He shows us the war through British eyes-- and gunsights-- too, making the mortal conflict between the redcoats and the rebels all the more compelling. -- adapted from jacket
