Author Spotlight: Rick Atkinson

Rick Atkinson is the bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the Liberation Trilogy, and now he turns his intellectual eye to a new era: the American Revolution.

THE BRITISH ARE COMING: The War for America, Lexington to Princeton, 1775-1777 (The Revolution Trilogy, Volume 1) recounts the first twenty-one months of America’s violent war for independence, from the battles at Lexington and Concord in spring 1775 to those at Trenton and Princeton in winter 1777.

Full of riveting details and untold stories, THE BRITISH ARE COMING is a tale of heroes and knaves, of sacrifice and blunder, of redemption and profound suffering. Rick Atkinson has given stirring new life to the first act of our country’s creation drama.

Praise for THE BRITISH ARE COMING:

“Aided by fine and numerous maps, this is superb military and diplomatic history and represents storytelling on a grand scale.”–Booklist, starred review
