Publisher's Summary

When young Josiah Penn Stockbridge accepts the position as aide-de-camp to George Washington at the beginning of the Revolutionary War, he thinks only of the glory and romance of battle. He is unprepared for the reality of America's bloody fight for independence. The Continental Army is starving, underpaid, and dangerously close to mutiny, and Washington fights not just to defeat the British but to maintain order and morale among his own men.
As anonymous letters by officers calling for revolt circulate through camp in Newburgh, New York, Washington must make a choice: preserve the young republic by keeping civilian control of the military, or reshape the new government by standing in solidarity with his troops and assuming greater power for himself.
During one fateful week in American history, Josiah will watch a conflicted general become a legend and will discover for himself that the greatest struggles of war are those within the hearts and minds of fallible men.

Story over chapter 12

The story was based on a very narrow piece of history. The book is good for history buffs. The last 13 chapters were basically the "credits". The book was a bit of a dissapointment but the narration good.

WOW!!! Well read and well researched!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have a greater respect for George Washington for his humanity and his role in the American Revolution! May we continue to be vigilante to not only praise one for what they have done but also what they haven’t to live a life with honor and integrity!
