Description
(Winner of the 2013 New England Book Award for Non-Fiction and a Washington Post Notable Book of 2013) The National Book Award–winning author of In the Heart of the Sea and Mayflower, and one of our favorite New England historians here at Daedalus, Nathaniel Philbrick gives us a vivid and blistering chronicle of the years between the Boston Tea Party and the first real battle of the Revolution. He resurrects such little-remembered figures as Joseph Warren, a 33-year-old physician and a key leader of the rebellion before his death at Bunker Hill, and offers fresh portraits of men like Paul Revere and the newly recruited George Washington. But Philbrick's real hero is the city of Boston itself, pinned between a British blockade and a Patriot militia until their skirmishes gave way to outright war.

"A tightly focused and richly detailed narrative that just happens to resonate with leadership lessons for all times.... Philbrick is at his most vivid in conveying scenes of battle, both on the road between Boston and Concord and on the ridges of Bunker Hill. But what adds depth to the narrative is his fine sense of the ambitions that drive people in war and politics."—Washington Post
