Liberty: The American Revolution by Thomas Fleming

http://www.amazon.com/Liberty-American-Revolution-Thomas-Fleming/dp/0670870218/ref=sr_1_22?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1376082568&sr=1-22&keywords=liberty

This is one I am reading currently. I have really enjoyed a more in depth look at the pre-war history from 1765-1775. Stunning pictures as well.

Bunker Hill: A City, a Siege, a Revolution

http://www.amazon.com/Bunker-Hill-City-Siege-Revolution/dp/0670025445/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1376856118&sr=1-1&keywords=bunker+hill

Apparently this book is being made into a high budget movie. Hopefully others will learn our shared message as a result of the movie and knowing the info in the book will help dovetail the two together.
