Publisher's Summary

Volume Five begins on an optimistic note. The French recognition of the United States on February 6, 1778, along with the promise of military assistance, renewed Washington’s confidence in eventual success. But before that day arrived in 1781, three years of hardship, privation, and suspense would intervene. Throughout this ordeal George Washington’s towering presence was the catalyst that kept everything together. In his daily interactions with his officers, his indefatigable energy, his calm in the face of setbacks, and his princely behavior during the Benedict Arnold affair…in all of this and more, Washington proved to friend and foe alike why he was the indispensable leader. Follow along as George Washington steers his army of Patriots to victory with the help of France.

Critic Reviews

"Freeman's treatment of Washington as a Commander in Chief is virtually definitive" (The New York Times Book Review)

"For the popular, novelized biography, full of glib insights into the inner man, Freeman has nothing but contempt. His dogged intent is to portray Washington day by day and year by year, through each new experience, as if nothing were known and nothing were certain about his future." (Time magazine)
