Osprey Trade Editions : Boston 1775

The British assault on Breed's Hill and the burning of Charlestown were the first major battles of the American Revolution; after the events at Boston there could be no turning back. Brendan Morrissey describes how the sparks at Lexington and Concord ignited the smouldering resentment of the Colonists into the flame of a rebellion. Colonist militia were pitted against British Redcoats in a series of struggles which led the British to evacuate Boston and to George Washington taking command of the fledgling American army. He looks at the forces involved: the regulars of the British Army, the Royal Navy and the American militia and 'minutemen'. The opposing commanders are also examined and the book is laid out in order to clearly show each of the phases in this early part of the American War of Independence: Lexington and Concord, Breed's Hill and the American siege of British held Boston. Finally. Brendan Morrissey investigates the reaction in Great Britain, Europe and America to the rebel success. The detailed text is backed up by a wide selection of contemporary illustrations and modern colour images showing the main commanders, troop types and fighting in progress. An excellent book which does much to dispel some of the myths of the American Revolution.
