Ned Ryun: The Adversaries: A Story of Boston and Bunker Hill

Boston, September 1774. It is the beginning of the confrontation that changes the course of history. . . for England and for America. The tension between the colonies and Britain has reached a breaking point. The British are determined to tighten their grip on the colonies, but have underestimated the resolve of their subjects in Boston who refuse to bend the knee.

From the salons of London, where English elites plot the crushing of the colonies, to the halls of Philadelphia where firebrands challenge the British resolve, to the backstreets of Boston where men who once called each other brothers-in-arms now plot against and fight each other for the Crown or for liberty, this is the compelling story of the nine months that transformed the world.

In The Adversaries the men and women-who packed the powder keg and lit the fuse to the revolution that transformed distant colonies into a beacon of liberty-come to life on the streets of London, Boston, and Charlestown in a compelling and dramatic narrative of tested loyalties and fateful meetings.

But even more, this story is a reminder of what occurs when leaders abandon eternal principles and the rule of law for avarice and power, and how a free people tells its government it will not allow its freedoms to be abused any longer. This is the story of Dr. Joseph Warren and his American comrades who with inspiring courage and heartbreaking sacrifice spark the greatest endeavor in human history: the founding of the free American Republic.
