Publisher's Summary

In 1770, the fuse of revolution is lit by a fateful command - "Fire!" - as England's peace keeping mission ignites into the Boston Massacre. The senseless killing of civilians leads to a tumultuous trial in which lawyer John Adams must defend the very enemy who has assaulted and abused the laws he holds sacred. The taut courtroom drama soon broadens into a stunning epic of war as King George III leads a reckless and corrupt government in London toward the escalating abuse of his colonies. More than a powerful portrait of the people and purpose of the Revolution, Rise to Rebellion is a vivid account of history's most pivotal events. The Boston Tea Party, the battles of Concord and Bunker Hill - all are recreated with the kind of breathtaking detail only a master like Jeff Shaara can muster. His most impressive achievement, Rise to Rebellion reveals with new immediacy how philosophers became fighters with ideas as ammunition, and how a scattered group of colonies became the United States of America.

Great book hurt greatly as abridged

This is a great book which introduces you to historical characters and events in a new way and depth. Unfortuatly the abridged version can only tell of the events without letting you get to know the people behind the events, or the depth of the issues that drove them. If they ever release the unabridged version, I will gladly buy it and recommend it.
