Book Review -- Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution


I recently finished the audiobook version of Bunker Hill:  A City, A Siege, A Revolution by Nathaniel Philbrick. It was a very detailed account of events in Revolutionary Massachusetts from the Boston Tea Party in 1773 through the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775. Both this book and Igniting the American Revolution by Derek Beck have made me interested in learning more about Dr. Joseph Warren, a Revolutionary leader in Boston who was killed in action at Breed's Hill during the battle. It is likely he would be remembered with the likes of Washington, Jefferson, and both Samuel and John Adams had he not perished.  For more, see this review in the Washington Post.
