This audiobook history of the first shots of the American Revolution will stir you to your patriotic roots. Author Daughan is anything but impartial, and his account of British intransigence and miscalculation is tempered by Mike Chamberlain's steady, evenly paced delivery. Chamberlain tends to parcel out his sentences, a little like reciting Anglo-Saxon poetry. But his measured reading serves his author well in a narrative that is crowded with names and events yet compelling in its frankness and vigor. Listeners on both side of the current gun debate will find this title particularly relevant in explaining the meaning of an armed militia and the individual's right to bear arms in the minds of the framers of the Constitution.
