He is a former staff writer and senior editor at The Washington Post. He is author of The British Are Coming: The War for America, Lexington to Princeton, 1775-1777 (Henry Holt and Co.), the extraordinary first volume of his new trilogy about the American Revolution. 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. 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.
