Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution - Nathaniel Philbrick

The bloodiest clash of the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Bunker Hill was the culmination of a siege, a tea party, and a city’s conflicted loyalties. With his usual skillful storytelling and sharp analysis, Nathaniel Philbrick, also the author of Mayflower and Why Read Moby-Dick? plumbs those events as they transitioned an uprising into a war. The scholarship in Bunker Hill (Penguin, $18) is as sound as its prose is accessible, making history appealing on a summer reading list. As Philbrick dusts off (or strips the gilding from) the battle’s instigators and victims, he discovers a fresh sense of the importance of revolutionary Boston and its seminal battle.
