THE FORT A Novel of the Revolutionary War

by | Read by Robin Bowerman

Historical Fiction • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Bernard Cornwell turns his attention to a little-known slice of American history—the Penobscot Expedition, a foolishly conceived, ill-planned attack to remove the British from Fort George (now Castine, Maine) by the militia and navy of Massachusetts in the summer of 1779. Driven less by patriotism than by the possibility of monetary gain, this exercise in war-for-profit proved an unqualified disaster. Robin Bowerman’s energetic reading, especially during conversations and fast-paced action sequences, insists on complete attention. Bowerman changes voices and timbres so quickly and easily that listeners will be sure he’s sharing the booth with a full cast. Thanks to Cornwell’s meticulous attention to military and nonmilitary details and Bowerman’s spot-on reading, history buffs, particularly Revolutionary War enthusiasts, will find much to consider here.
