Formatted Contents Note: Part I. Commitment to war (mid-May to October 1775) -- Mounting tensions -- Seizing the offensive -- Blows must decide -- Passing of batons -- Part II. Crucible (October 1775 to Spring 1776) -- Struggles of Autumn -- Desperate measures -- Battle amid the blizzard -- A new year begins -- Epilogue.
Summary, etc.: The War Before Independence transports readers into the violent years of 1775 and 1776, with the infamous Battle of Bunker Hill {u2013} a turning point in the Revolution {u2013} and the snowy, wind-swept march to the frozen ground at the Battle of Quebec, ending with the exciting conclusion of the Boston Campaign. Meticulous research and new material drawn from letters, diaries, and investigative research throws open the doors not only to familiar figures and faces, but also little-known triumphs and tribulations of America's greatest military leaders, including George Washington.
