: the F & I War -- some 900 pages of it. I would
: not suggest reading it whilst reclining, as it

: looks authoritative. In light of our many recent
: discussions about stumpy little Mel's movie, there
: is also a new book called "The Day The American
: Revolution Began" by William H. Hallahan. It looks
: good -- the jacket says it's filled with "surprising
: new revelations about Lexington and Concord," i.e.,
: that "the shot heard 'round the world" was not
: fired accidentally, but deliberately in order to
: foment the violence that sparked the war.

Doc M thanks for posting that. I too have this book, but hadn't had time to look up the author's name and it had slipped my mind. It is BIG, but looks to be a thorough delving into F&I War. Hope to start it soon.!!
