    There seems to be a lot of books discussing the opening salvos of the American Revolution Nathanial Philbrick s book is muchinteresting and tells the exact same story with some attention payed to the larger deliberations and a stronger back story Paul Lockhart wrote a book a few years back which in my mind is a much better book about the Battles of Lexington and Concord even thought it s true focus is on Bunker Hill While Bornerman does a decent enough job he doesn t add anything new to There seems to be a lot of books discussing the opening salvos of the American Revolution Nathanial Philbrick s book is muchinteresting and tells the exact same story with some attention payed to the larger deliberations and a stronger back story Paul Lockhart wrote a book a few years back which in my mind is a much better book about the Battles of Lexington and Concord even thought it s true focus is on Bunker Hill While Bornerman does a decent ...
