Description
The Battle of Bunker Hill was the first hostile engagement of the American Revolution between two organized armies, and the first time that a genuine American army had ever taken the field. It gave the British their first inkling that the colonial rabble-in-arms they had envisioned might actually prove to be a formidable fighting force. In this book, James Nelson looks at the events leading up to that fateful day, the Britons and Americans who made momentous decisions, and the bloody outcome of those crucial choices, which would affect the British strategy on the battlefield throughout the coming six years of active warfare.

"A clever, often sardonic history of an iconic battle…. Nelson makes an entertaining case that the American Revolution may have been won on Bunker Hill."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
