Although not free downloads, I have several recent titles that I can recommend:
The Road to Concord - Derek Bell, This tells the story of the cannon from the Boston Militia and highlights Gages's worry about them.
Bunker Hill - Nathaniel Philbrick   The first 100 or so pages are our story told in good detail.  The rest is useful information on what follows our story.
