A birthday gift from my father, (who knows what books I like), I jumped right into volume one of “The Revolution Trilogy” by a superb history author, Rick Atkinson. I was not disappointed!

The British Are Coming: The War for America, Lexington to Princeton, 1775-1777 by Rick Atkinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just finished “The British Are Coming”, which explains the early years of the American Revolution in extraordinary detail. Atkinson’s style of writing brings the events to life, making it easy to envision in your mind. You almost feel as if you are actually there!

Though familiar with the series of the events of the period, I’m still looking forward to volume 2 of “The Revolution Trilogy.”

A “must-read” for any American history enthusiast!
