Summary (From the publisher):

Howard Fast has long been one of the most vivid and passionate chroniclers of American history. Through such works as The Crossing and The Immigrants, he has shown us the dreams and ambitions of the men and women who built a nation. Now, in Bunker Hill, he provides insight into both American and British points of view during the battle for control of Boston in June 1775 – the outcome of which would dramatically influence the strategies of George Washington and Sir William Howe for the rest of the war. Most dramatic of all is the battle for Breed’s and Bunker Hill: On one side, a few hundred American men and boys, fighting in the fashion they learned from the American Indians; on the other, three thousand soldiers of the mightiest army on Earth. What follows is one of the bloodiest battles of the American Revolution. There, for a moment in time, the American rebels turned back Europe’s best-trained soldiers before they were forced to flee.
