Redcoat by Bernard Cornwell
Revolutionary War / February 18, 2016

Bernard Cornwell may be well-known for writing about the Danes and Saxons (thinks to the hit new BBC series). However, move forward a few centuries to Redcoat, a great Rev War thriller, set around Philadelphia. The villain is someone you will be glad to see get his due, just the sort who gave the British a bad name back in 1776. Title: Redcoat Author: Bernard Cornwell Genre: Fiction Publisher: Harper Collins Release Date: April 15, 2003 Pages: 512 It is autumn 1777, and the cradle of liberty, Philadelphia, has fallen to the British. Yet the true battle has only just begun. On both sides, loyalties are tested and families torn asunder. The young Redcoat Sam Gilpin has seen his brother die. Now he must choose between duty to a distant king and the call of his own conscience. And for the men and women of the prosperous Becket family, the Revolution brings bitter conflict between those loyal to the crown and those with dreams of liberty. Soon, across the fields of ice and blood in a place called Valley Forge, history will be rewritten, changing the lives and fortunes of these men and women forever.
