9780062010872: The Fort: A Novel of the Revolutionary War

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.

Book Description Harper Paperbacks, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the summer of 1779, as the major fighting of the Revolutionary War moves to the South, a British force consisting of fewer than a thousand Scottish infantry and backed by three sloops-of-war sails to the fogbound coast of New England. Establishing a garrison and naval base at Penobscot Bay, in the eastern province of Massachusetts, the Scots harry rebel privateers and shelter American loyalists. In response, the Americans send more than forty vessels and some one thousand infantrymen to captivate, kill, or destroy the foreign invaders. But ineptitude and irresolution lead to a mortifying defeat that will have stunning repercussions for two men on opposite sides of the conflict: an untested young Scottish lieutenant named John Moore, at the beginning of an illustrious military career . . . and a Boston silversmith and patriot named Paul Revere, who will face court-martial for disobedience and cowardice.
