Yet one became our greatest hero and the other our most notorious traitor. Why?
Author and military historian Dave Palmer reveals the answer: character. In this fascinating and unique dual biography, Palmer also shows:
How Arnold's treason actually helped the Patriot cause
Why Arnold and Washington's amazingly similar backgrounds, family influences, youthful experiences, and "self-made'' status led to strikingly different results in their lives
How in four well-defined steps Arnold went from hero to traitor
Presenting the panorama of the Revolutionary War through the lives of two of its most colorful and important figures, George Washington and Benedict Arnold reveals important lessons for today through a story that few Americans know, but that every American should.

A Tale of Triumph and Tragedy
Would you try another book from Dave Richard Palmer and/or Lynn Benson?
I would read one from Palmer, but Benson's performance wasn't very good, so I probably wouldn't listen to another by him.
What other book might you compare George Washington and Benedict Arnold to and why?
Any dual biography that features intertwined destinies. I often thought of Grant and Sherman
Would you be willing to try another one of Lynn Benson’s performances?
His performance was not very good, unfortunately.
Was George Washington and Benedict Arnold worth the listening time?
Yes, the story was excellent, and there is not very much content about Benedict Arnold out there.
