Nathaniel Philbrick spoke about his book, Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution, at Politics & Prose on Wednesday, May 15, 2013.

One of our foremost historians, Philbrick is also a powerful storyteller. In his new book the author of the bestselling Mayflower takes us back to the tense summer of 1775, when a series of incidents between British soldiers and colonists made it clear that full-scale battle was imminent. Violence at Lexington and Concord soon led to the legendary Battle of Bunker Hill—the bloodiest firefight of the Revolution.
