    " I read this for a class, but really enjoyed learning about George Washington the General. He wasn't perfect and that was a relief. "

    " A great biography of his military life. You always think of George being flawless and successful. Not true in his military career. As he learned his craft, he made mistakes along the way and they are all documented here. The descriptive battle scenes are disturbing but realistic. "

    " Not my favorite Founding Father, but a fascinating life! "

    " Focuses on Washington's military leadership. Labors somewhat and omits some of the most interesting details of Washington's career, but overall not bad. "
