The War Before Independence: 1775-1776

THE BEFORE INDEPENDENCE                 DEREK W. BECK

The War Before Independence transports readers into the violent years of 1775 and 1776, with the infamous Battle of Bunker Hill – a turning point in the Revolution – and the snowy, wind-swept march to the frozen ground at the Battle of Quebec, ending with the exciting conclusion of the Boston Campaign. Meticulous research and new material drawn from letters, diaries, and investigative research throws open the doors not only to familiar figures and faces, but also little-known triumphs and tribulations of America's greatest military leaders, including George Washington.

Wonderfully detailed and stunningly layered, The War Before Independence brings America's early upheaval to a ferocious boil on both sides of the battlefield, and vividly captures the spirit of a fight that continues to inspire brave hearts today.
 

PAT'S REVIEW


The author takes you through the battle of Bunker Hill like you have never been taught before. The names that he mentioned I had only heard just a few, and you also get the feel of the new colonies fighting not together but each militia fighting separately. Rode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and others. How they would run out of gunpowder, and food not expecting to be their but just for a short while. He also shows you how they were already looking at stopping the British through killing their livestock since they did not have any beef, and fruit with them. He also takes you through the Battle of Quebec where one man before he would turn traitor was actually a good leader and planer that man General Arnold. You also see the problems that begin to rise when Washington arrives from Congress with notice that he is to form an army and his struggles in doing so. A very good book in the first year 1775-1776 and the author does a good job of giving you both sides of the information which is nice. A very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
