Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date

The bestselling author of In the Heart of the Sea, Mayflower, and In the Hurricane's Eye tells the story of the Boston battle that ignited the American Revolution, in this 'masterpiece of narrative and perspective.' (Boston Globe)

In the opening volume of his acclaimed American Revolution series, Nathaniel Philbrick turns his keen eye to pre-Revolutionary Boston and the spark that ignited the American Revolution. In the aftermath of the Boston Tea Party and the violence at Lexington and Concord, the conflict escalated and skirmishes gave way to outright war in the Battle of Bunker Hill. It was the bloodiest conflict of the revolutionary war, and the point of no return for the rebellious colonists. Philbrick gives us a fresh view of the story and its dynamic personalities, including John Adams, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere, and George Washington. With passion and insight, he reconstructs the revolutionary landscape—geographic and ideological—in a mesmerizing narrative of the robust, messy, blisteringly real origins of America.

I have never experienced this piece of history in this detail before. The book is written at a level of detail that kept my interest from beginning to end. It is well-narrated. I recommend it without reservations.

I grew up near Bunker Hill in East Somerville. Before they built the old Sullivan Square station from an old airplane hanger I believe we could even see the top of it. I simply had to read this book. It was well written and broad in scope. I learned not only about the Battle of Bunker Hill but of the battles leading up to it in Lexington and Concord and that George Washington came in after the Battle of Bunker Hill to drive the British out of Boston. I thought that was pretty awesome. Learning about Joesph Warren and the other Patriots was very interesting. This is an important book for Bostonians.
