This is the heroic story of America's fight for freedom from King George of England, including the military genius, the unbeatable spirit, and rugged leadership of George Washington, the hero who made it all happen.

Many times during the eight-year struggle, the fight seemed hopeless - yet George Washington fought on and proved to the mighty countries of France and Germany that his thrown-together army of farmers, shopkeepers, and patrolmen was strong enough to defeat the British redcoats, who were considered the world's most powerful army at that time.

    " This book was easily one of the most well written biographies I have ever read. It is comprehensive, compelling, and a pleasure to read. Chernow has exploded the myth of the stoic Washington that still dominates popular portrayals of Washington by revealing the man's deep passion. The only low-point in the book seemed to be the chapters covering his presidency which seemed to be a rather dull period of his life. He was quite busy, but rarely doing anything interesting. That being said, this book is worthy of all of the praises and accolades that is has received. I looked forward to reading it and it did not disappoint. It has my heartiest recommendation. "

    " As a friend who read this told me, thank God The United States had Washington. Relying heavily on correspondence, the book gives an excellent feeling for the rock our nation was built upon. At times, reading prose from the 18th Century can become too much like a history assignment, but the rational behind our beginnings comes thru. Makes me ask once again, have we seen the best of it? "

    " For a readable, well-documented picture of Washington from his love of aristocratic luxury to his principled refusal to misuse popular adoration after the Revolutionary War, this book is the best I have read. "

    " Excellent read, with the bonus of Chernow boosting your word vocabulary with new words on every other page. This book will give you a fresh look at the General and change what you thought you knew about Martha and George. Also surprising how the 1790's political environment has not changed very much today.
