This was book 3/3 in the George Washington series. To be honest, when I read the first book in the series, I didn't expect anything but mediocre. I was pleasantly surprised. This book included personalities such as Comte de Rochambeau, Benedict Arnold, and Alexander Hamilton. Best historical series I've read in awhile. 367 pages

I continue to be wowed by this series. This is the "real" story of the revolution and not a sanitized version. Love how General Mad Anthony Wayne, von Steuben, Gates, and Lafayette are brought to life

I highly recommend this series - utterly fabulous if quite chilling.
