Publisher Description

‘Captivate, kill or destroy the whole force of the enemy’ was the order given to the American soldiers.

THE FORT is the blistering novel from worldwide bestseller Bernard Cornwell.

Summer 1779.

Seven hundred and fifty British soldiers and three small ships of the Royal Navy. Their orders: to build a fort above a harbour to create a base from which to control the New England seaboard.

Forty-one American ships and over nine hundred men. Their orders: to expel the British.

The battle that followed was a classic example of how the best-laid plans can be disrupted by personality and politics, and of how warfare can bring out both the best and worst in men. It is a timeless tale of men at war, written by a master storyteller.

Mazarakis ,

Very good read

An interesting history of a not so known (to me) expedition that has unexpected results.

The characters and their lead up gives an interesting twist on scenarios and allows you to picture quite clearly in
the scenes before them.

Time for me to buy another of his books!

The Fort.

Different. A book about a battle that doesn't really happen.
Evidence o good, extensive research. Very enjoyable.

Similar yet diff

Similar skill of writing which founded the Sharpe's series on TV but different as it had a different set of characters and countries!
