    Om BUNKER HILL

    "Philbrick explores the complexities of pre-revolutionary New England in vivid, realistic and sometimes shocking colour ... [character] is certainly the animating spirit of this fine narrative history and, in a sprawling, vibrant cast, the character that emerges most forcefully is that of the city of Boston itself: tumultuous, vigorous and fascinating." -- Ben McIntyre THE TIMES "A tightly focused and richly detailed narrative that just happens to resonate ... From the outset, Philbrick makes it clear that, unlike many other popular historians of the Revolution, he plans to be even-handed rather than merely glorofy the colonial rebels .. . at his most vivid in conveying scenes of battle ... but what adds depth to the narrative is his fine sense of the ambitions that drive people in war and politics." WASHINGTON POST "A fine account of a bloody early battle." ECONOMIST "A masterpiece of narrative and perspective ... unforgettable ... there is hardly any story of New England grit and grandeur to match this one." BOSTON GLOBE "A notable merit of his account of the birth of the American revolution is its fairmindedness ... readable and sensible." -- Max Hastings SUNDAY TIMES
