    If you think you know George Washington, think again. This is the amazing true story of a real-life superhero who wore no cape and possessed no special powers—yet changed the world forever. It's a story about a man whose life reads as if it were torn from the pages of an action novel: Bullet holes through his clothing. Horses shot out from under him. Unimaginable hardship. Disease. Heroism. Spies and double-agents. And, of course, the unmistakable hand of Divine Providence that guided it all.

    Dell says: "My hero has been brought back. Thanks Glenn."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, would recommend, because there might be a piece of history you might have forgotten and this might jog your memory.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Being George Washington?

    Understanding more fully the role Napolean Bonapart played and his relationship with George Washington was very interesting. Also, getting a deeper understanding of how George Washington was respected and admired.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I'm not sure I liked his character voice for George. Also, some of his accents were not so good, like the french accent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, understanding how much George Washington sacrificed for his love of country and how much he was away from home.


    Any additional comments?

    It is pretty amazing to realize just how long and arduous this war was against the British and how many men sacrificed their lives for a better way of life. At least they knew who the enemy was back then. Today, sadly, our enemies are like ghosts.
