Bernard Cornwell, King of the historical action adventure has picked on an extraordinary battle in history -The Penobscot Expedition - that has fascinated the author for years, and will now fascinate his readers. 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.  It’s 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.  It’s historical action and adventure at its very best and will be eagerly awaited by his millions of readers and new readers too.
