“War is not what you think it is,” warned the rifleman …
Especially the war of the American Revolution. Six rich kids, students at an unusual boarding school in the year 1775, admire the American Colonials from afar. They read all the Bostonians’ pamphlets, follow their battles, and collect souvenirs of the American rebellion.
One by one, each of the students is pulled into the global war for equality and liberty — with unexpected results. Each find that the struggle for human dignity is not quite what they had imagined.
The Colonials is an old-fashioned epic adventure story complete with swashbuckling fights, treachery, hidden identities and assassins.
