    PDF/EPUB nuiun.de è The Fort Kindle À fort free, The Fort PDFI tiredHA I meant to write I tried but I'm going to leave that typo in because it's suitable I tried reading The Fort and I tired of it Unless they're causing me to pull out my pubes or take a potato peeler to my eyeballs I don't like to give up on books However as I neared the halfway point of this American Revolution historical fiction by Bernard Cornwell I realized I had no investment in the characters and little interest in the story The tweezers and spud peelers beckoned ominouslyI was surprised I was giving up on a Bernard Cornwell book being such a big fan of his Sharpe series He does battle action excellently and has a good eye for historical detail Part of the problem with The Fort was that it takes a while for the action to develop There's a good deal of backstory dumped on the reader in order to set the stage I thought I'd enjoy this bit since I just finished Nathaniel Ph

    PDF/EPUB nuiun.de è The Fort Kindle À fort free, The Fort PDFWhen you read history or in this case historical fiction you often learn something unexpected and in The Fort something not very pleasant about our country’s beginnings Cornwell unveils the virtually unknown military disaster of 1779 when a large force of American revolutionaries tries to dislodge a newly established British encampment on the coast of colonial Massachusetts future Maine It is not surprising that this battle has not been covered I can only shake my head and wonder how we beat the superpower of the day with such incompetence displayed here The book is not one of Cornwell’s most gripping stories There are only a few characters that are interesting or appealing but he does confine himself to using real historical characters in most of the story What slapped me upside the head was the portrayal of Paul Revere he of the “midnight ride” The Paul Revere in this story is not the one most Americans ar

    PDF/EPUB nuiun.de è The Fort Kindle À fort free, The Fort PDFCharles van BurenTOP 1000 REVIEWER50 out of 5 starsexcellent history filled Bernard Cornwell novelMarch 8 2019Format Kindle EditionThis novel is based on a military action in what was then a part of Massachusetts but is now Maine The Penobscot expedition is not one of the better known battles of the American War of Independence Possibly because it was a major defeat and for many decades the worst US naval defeatCornwell usually does his research and I noticed no glaring historical inaccuracies So This novel offers some interesting insights into Paul Revere beyond just his seeming inability to get along with people As with most Cornwell books this one is well written with action and excellent character development There is perhaps a bit history in this one than is usualI recei
