Description

“Howard Fast is fiercely American, he is one of ours, one of our very best.”
—The Los Angeles Times

One battle will determine the fate of Boston

Three thousand soldiers from the world’s greatest army are cornered in Boston, surrounded by farmers and doctors turned rebel soldiers and generals. For a week both sides are at an impasse, until June 17, 1775, when the standstill comes to a violent, bloody end on Breed’s and Bunker hills.
In Bunker Hill, master storyteller Howard Fast recounts the unlikely battle that changed the course of the Revolutionary War forever. Tensions rise among both the British and Colonial soldiers as political and tactical frustrations, dissent, confusion, and fear threaten to tear both sides apart before the fighting even begins.

“Fast is at his best as Storyteller.”
—Christian Science Monitor
