Product description

The Penobscot Expedition is an extraordinary story, one that has fascinated the author for years, and will now fascinate his readers. Summer 1779, a British force of fewer than one thousand Scottish infantry were sent to build a garrison in the State of Maine. The war of Independence was in its third year and no other British troops stood between Canada and New York. The State of Massachusetts was determined to expel the British, but when they sent a fleet of forty vessels to 'captivate, kill and destroy' they underestimated their enemies, calm in battle and ready for victory. Told from both sides of the battle, the main characters are all real figures from history. Based on diaries, letters and court transcripts, we meet many of the war's greatest heroes, including Paul Revere and John Moore, each of whom become famous subjects of war poetry.
The unclipped dustjacket is in very good condition. It has a Waterstone's sticker on the front. The hardback cover is in very good condition apart from some white marks to the edges in places - probably from the dustjacket - and very light bumping at the top of the spine. The binding is sound. The pages are clean and unmarked. It is signed by the author on the title page.
Copyright 2010, probably a first edition.
