My brother has a keen interest in the American Revolution (aka The American War of Independence, often abbreviated by wargamers as the AWI). After visiting him in New England, the "epicenter" of the Revolution, I remembered I had a couple books about the AWI taking up space in my "TBR File" (To Be Read).

One of these was Bunker Hill by Howard Fast.

I must admit this is the first book I've read by the author of Spartacus, which I didn't know he wrote, along with a slew of other well-known works.Wh
Not for children. The insights are interesting, historical context etc., but the writing is totally sub par and this is a pretty lascivious book for no clear reason. Lots of buxom easy women and paunchy mansluts.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one, in particular the caustic Henry Clinton.
It was raunchier in parts than I expected!
Just like Bernard Cornwell only the opposite. Bizarro Cornwell.

2.5. Just barely better than ok.
Had high expectations from the author of Spartacus and was seriously disappointed – not recommended.
