It’s here, Volume One of Rick Atkinson’s The Revolution Trilogy! At last, the story of the Revolutionary War, beyond the limits of a single volume. Volume one, THE BRITISH ARE COMING, is extraordinary and that comes as no surprise to those who have read his WWII Liberation Trilogy, An Army at Dawn, The Day of Battle, The Guns at Last Light.
Volume One of the Revolution Trilogy tells the story from both the American and British perspective of the first 21 months of America’s war for independence. Incredible detail and a volume of characters with many new heroes and knaves. Atkinson’s narrative is in living color. The Continental Army is indeed ragtag, and Ben Franklin, Henry Knox, Nathaniel Greene, George Washington and many others are all seen in a new and very much alive perspective. Even though history has unveiled the outcome, Atkinson entices the reader to plead for more intricate detail on just how that ending unfolded. Volume Two is on the way.
