Publisher's Summary

A stand-alone battle book, set this time in the 18th century in the rebellious colony of Massachusetts.
This new novel takes place during the very early days of the rebellion, or the War of Independence, before Washington and before the organization of a colonial army.
A small British fleet with a few soldiers on board had sailed in to be met, to their surprise, with an overwhelming strength of local militia.
Bernard Cornwell tells the story of those on both sides of the conflict , based largely on real figures, including of course Paul Revere (famous from a much later poem), and features the issues that appeared here and then throughout the whole war.
The success of Azincourt all over the world was such that there will be a very warm welcome for a new single battle book from the master storyteller.

fort what

Would you try another book from Bernard Cornwell and/or Robin Bowerman?

i like the sharpe series robin bowerman was alright as the narrator but the story could have been a lot better a bit dissapointing after the sharpe books

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

a think a little less of the letter extracts and more on the storyline the ending is also a bit flat not one of bernards better books

What does Robin Bowerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

i think he brings some characters to life

Do you think The Fort needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

no not really one like that is enough
