From the New York Times bestselling author of In The Heart of the Sea, comes a surprising account of the middle years of the American Revolution, and the tragic relationship between George Washington and Benedict Arnold.

my Review

This is my first Philbrick read, but definitely not my last.
This could have very easily been a straight forward autobiography of Benedict Arnold, but Philbrick adds such depth and nuance that the reader not only gets the facts of Arnold’s life, but also a truer understanding of the man myself. Great read. Highly recommended for history buffs. I look forward to reading more of Philbrick’s work.
