Explicitly inspired by the Green Mountain Boys that captured Fort Ticonderoga, Patriots creates a believable future mirror of that history. Told with Drake's usual skill and sharp wit, it is notably less bloody than most of his stories.
Recommended, appropriate for readers ten and older.

Patriots did not go where I expected in a.good way. The way the writer developed the characters to demonstrate differences in personality types I found intriguing and engaging. The payoff at the end had.me laughing out loud before the end of the scene. Good read.

This novel captures the flavor and spirit of the American Revolution.

The opening is humorous, with a giant of a man telling a little skinny fellow that he should now know better than to hit a man in the head with his fist.

In summary, there's a conflicting bureaucracy controlling various planets. One planet is settled with land grants from one bureaucrat in contradiction to grants given by another bureaucrat. Unfortunately, the first group has already settled their land.

Now, the second group, where the bureaucrat has more solid legal authority, is dividing up already settled land to flood the planet with their overflow population.

This sets the book up for the most unlikely rebellion in some time...

This is a good short little book from David Drake. Not much action is the only thing I have to complain about. The book is worth your money.
what can i say? david drake is very, very good at taking an historical event, reformatting it into a new environment, and creating realistic characters who develop during the evolution of the story. great job
