The Fort is a historical novel written by Bernard Cornwell which relates to the events of the Penobscot Expedition of 1779 during the American Revolutionary War. It is centered on the efforts of the British to establish and hold the fort against superior numbers of American patriots, and it contrasts the actions of John Moore and Paul Revere. Moore later laid the foundations of the light infantry doctrine used by the 95th Rifles and others against the French in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.
