ABOUT RICK ATKINSON:  Rick Atkinson is the Bestselling Author of the Liberation TrilogyAn Army at Dawn (Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for History), The Day of Battle, and The Guns at Last Light—as well as The Long Gray Line and other Books.  His many additional Awards include a Pulitzer Prize for Journalism, the George Polk Award, and the Pritzker Military Library Literature Award.  A former Staff Writer and Senior Editor at The Washington Post; he lives in Washington, D.C.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  From Rick Atkinson, Bestselling Author of the Liberation Trilogy comes the extraordinary 1st Volume of his New Trilogy about the American Revolution.  Rick Atkinson, Bestselling Author of the Pulitzer Prize-Winning An Army at Dawn and 2 other superb Books about World War II, has long been admired for his deeply researched, stunningly vivid narrative histories.  Now he turns his attention to a New War, and in the initial Volume of the Revolution Trilogy he recounts the first 21 Months of America’s violent War for independence.

From the battles at Lexington and Concord in spring 1775 to those at Trenton and Princeton in winter 1777, American militiamen and then the ragged Continental Army take on the World’s most formidable fighting force.  It is a gripping saga alive with astonishing characters: Henry Knox, the former Bookseller with an uncanny understanding of artillery; Nathanael Greene, the blue-eyed bumpkin who becomes a brilliant Battle Captain; Benjamin Franklin, the self-made man who proves to be the wiliest of Diplomats; George Washington, the Commander-in-Chief who learns the difficult art of Leadership when the War seems all but lost.  The story is also told from the British perspective, making the mortal conflict between the Redcoats and the Rebels all the more compelling.

Full of riveting details and untold stories, The British Are Coming is a tale of heroes and knaves, of sacrifice and blunder, of redemption and profound suffering.  Rick Atkinson has given stirring new life to the first act of our country’s creation drama.
