KIRKUS REVIEW

Written without the false drama of much historical fiction, this is a gripping account of the Battle of Bunker Hill. The author does not rely on daredevil heroes to achieve suspense. The strength of the book is derived from a biting understanding of the issues, of the horrors and glories of that blazing day in Boston when a skirmish launched a war which was to have significance to the entire history of the western world. Restraint, humor, and a moderate fictional coating should recommend this both to readers who enjoy engrossing historical fiction and authentic history.
