David Hackett Fischer is an excellent historian who has written two excellent books on the American Revolution. Paul Revere's Ride is about the events leading up to April 19, 1775 and the battle of Lexington and Concord. His newest book is Washington's Crossing and is about the forging of the American Army, and the battles of Trenton and Princeton.

One can not truly understand the Revolution without a firm grasp of the Seven Years' War in North America. The best book on that subject is Crucible of War by Fred Anderson.
I just bought Washington's Crossing based on the CSPAN2 talk I saw.
