The Fort - Bernard Cornwell

Bernard Cornwell's latest paperback, The Fort, makes a break from Sharpe and the author's more recent look at Azincourt and sets his tale in one of the colonies - America.

The construction of The Fort (Fort George) and the subsequent battle, was hardly a pointer to the way things would lead in America's war of independence but it makes for an entertaining read.

Cornwell shows a comprehensively better grasp of this period than does Sarah Palin and you even get Longfellow's narrative poem The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere to prove it.
