Wonderful narrative of what led to the armed start of the american Revolution with very good drafted portraits of the players involved. A great bonus is that the book gives a thorough account of Joseph Warren's contribution to the fight for independence. In the books I have read so far he has mostly been given just a few lines. Here he gets his proper place!
Philbrick account of the events is engaging with details of places, persons and events to an extent that you feel as you were there. It's one of those book you wished would never end.
