I received a prepublication copy of this book (October 6, 2015) through NetGalley with the understanding that I would publish are review on my blog, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google + pages along with NetGalley, Amazon and Goodreads.
I requested this book because I am have an interest in the history of the United States. It is the first book by the author that I have read.
The title is a little misleading in that a very significant portion of the book takes place in 1775. That said, it is an interesting read and well documented. It holds your attention resulting in making it a quick read.
It covers the events leading up to the Battles of Lexington and Concord and then continues on covering the events surrounding the British occupation of Boston. This includes Paul Revere’s ride helping to separate fact from fiction along with the events surrounding Lexington and Concord.
I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in American History, especially the events leading up to the Revolutionary War.
