The British are Coming by Rick Atkinson


I love history, but I hadn’t any desire to read more than I have about the American Revolution. It’s just not my favorite time period, the play Hamilton notwithstanding (which you should attend and read the lyrics first, fyi), but, I have read the author’s Pulitzer Prize winning trilogy about World War II, “The Liberation Trilogy”, and so, took the plunge.

It’s a great thing that its Summer and therefore vacation season, because despite it being a thick tome of history, I found it almost unputdownable, and a terrific read. The author does speak in detail about the many battles and skirmishes that characterized the early American Revolution, but to use a cliché – he really makes history come alive and draws vivid portraits of the leaders, soldiers and common folk who fought and suffered in the early stages of the American Revolution. The first volume covers the early years, and I eagerly await the two to follow. If you think you know all you need to about this period of history, especially in light of our ongoing political mess, this is definitely worth a read for those that enjoy history.
