Yet in the midst of this bitter battle, Washington forged the intellectual, visceral, and spiritual aspects that enabled him to achieve all that he did in the years that followed. In this never-before-told account, historian Alan Axelrod examines the geopolitical, financial, and intensely personal issues that shaped the leader Washington would become.

What made the experience of listening to Blooding at Great Meadows the most enjoyable?
David Drummond does a wonderful job of reading Axelrod's well researched and readable book. I am a history buff who knows a lot about Washington's life and Colonial history, but this book enhanced my knowledge of his early period. A book like this peaks my interest in learning more.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Washington's flaws and virtues are discussed and related to his later character as general and president. There are no perfect men, but Washinton was able to learn from his mistakes to become a better leader and more noble man.
