“The most prolific and successful historical novelist in the world today” (Wall Street Journal) turns his talent for accuracy and vivid detail to recreate one of the greatest yet little known skirmishes of the Revolution: the Penobscot Expedition—a battle waged on land and sea that would be recognized as the worst naval disaster in America’s history until Pearl Harbor. The Fort is Cornwell’s first foray into the American Revolution in a stand-alone hardcover novel. Drawing from diaries, letters, and the transcripts of the enquiries and court-proceedings, the author recreates the events of the Penebscot Expedition in stunning detail.
