Description

Drawing heavily on Washington's own diaries, letters, and dispatches, Lewis follows his rise from a callow young man with no inheritance, no trade, and few prospects to the commander-in-chief of the military forces of colonial Virginia revealing that this progress was not due only to Washington's steadily growing qualities of leadership, courage, and devotion to liberty and justice, but also involved conniving, conspiracy, fawning on superiors, badmouthing subordinates, covering up disastrous mistakes, and outright lies.
