The Pulitzer Prize-winning co-author of Gotham tells the forgotten story of New York’s British prison camps—and the nearly 20,000 patriots who lost their lives there.

The Washington Post - Derek Leebaert

Burrows's book is a landmark whose significance far outweighs recent, popular biographies of the Founding Fathers. His sparkling prose, meticulous research and surprising findings recast our understanding of how the new nation was brought forth. He shows that systematic British atrocities served only to mobilize the American insurgency and harden U.S. resistance…Burrows masterfully explores a subject that had been left nearly untouched for more than two centuries
