The Fort

Author(s): Bernard Cornwell

General Fiction

A stand-alone battle book, set this time in the eighteenth-century in the rebellious colony of Massachusetts. This new novel takes place during the very early days of the rebellion, or the War of Independence, before Washington and before the organization of a colonial army. A small British fleet with a few soldiers on board had sailed in to be met, to their surprise, with an overwhelming strength of local militia. Bernard Cornwell is telling the story of those on both sides of the conflict , based largely on real figures , including of course Paul Revere (famous from a much later poem) and features the issues which appear here and then throughout the whole war.
