Format: Hardcover
Thomas Fleming wrote an outstanding book not only about the famous Battle of Bunker Hill, but about the relationship between Great Britain and the American Colonies. Fleming makes his point very well when he describes the close family ties between prominent families on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as the eventual dissatisfaction that both the crown and the colonies unfortunately had.
Military leaders on both sides of the issue, British and American did not want to fight against each other. From Sir Thomas Gage, the British General who's wife was an American to John Adams who until the start of the armed hostilities considered himself a subject of the Crown, Fleming tells about the hesitance of conflict. Alas, unfortunately due to delayed communications of the 18th Century, British and American arrogance, and other factors, harmed hostilities did indeed break out and thus the American Revolution began.
Fleming writes not only about the Battle of Bunker Hill but also the immediate events that led to the British Army and Marines marching up the hill, such as Lexington and Concord, Revere's famous midnight ride, the illegal meetings of men who wanted to break free from Great Britain such as Samuel Adams, Dr. Joseph Warren (a true patriot in every sense of the word), John Hancock, John Adams, et al.
The battle itself is told in gruesome yet rivoting detail. Many brave British and American soldiers died at Breed's/Bunker Hill. What a tragedy to hear of British Major John Pitcairn who died in his sons arms. Pitcairn was a friend of both British and American soldiers, yet he carried out his tragic orders to capture Americans and stop the revolt of the "American Rebels".

Format: Hardcover
This book was recommended to me by John Ferling, author of "John Adams A Life". I was looking for a book that went into detail about the events surrounding Bunker Hill. This is the most comprehensive look at the eventful day just outside of Boston. I never thought you would be able to devote an entire book to this one battle, but Fleming has done it without being redundant. This is a fabulous piece of American literature. You actually feel like you are there fighting along side the brave men who so nobly defended the hill(s). Sprung to life in this book is the great patriot Joseph Warren. His impact on the events that led up to this occasion as well as his bravery in fighting along side his fellow soldiers is unparalleled. He died gloriously in battle. This book is appropriate for general Revolutionary knowledge, but is best served for those interested in the details of the Battle of Bunker Hill.
I recommend this highly to all history buffs and can guarantee that you will come away with a broader understanding of this battle as well as the general psychy of the masses.
