By far the most important figure in the history of the United States, George Washington liberated the 13 colonies from the superior forces of the British Empire against all military odds, and presided over the production and ratification of a constitution that (suitably amended) has lasted for more than 200 years. Yet today, Washington remains a distant figure to many Americans, a failing that acclaimed author Paul Johnson sets out to rectify with this brilliantly vivid, sharply etched portrait of the great hero as a young warrior, masterful commander in chief, patient lawmaker, and exceptionally wise president.

    " Excellent book of well researched and well organized history. Our first President was truly a great man with a great vision. Johnson describes Washington's life extrordinarily within the frame of approx. 120 pages. "
