    In the 20th century Earth sent probes, transmissions, and welcoming messages to the stars. Unfortunately, someone noticed. The Galactics arrived with their battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined their vast Empire. Swearing allegiance to our distant alien overlords wasn't the only requirement for survival. We also had to have something of value to trade, something that neighboring planets would pay their hard-earned credits to buy. As most of the local worlds were too civilized to have a proper army, the only valuable service Earth could provide came in the form of soldiers....

    On a bitter cold day in January 1741, Benedict Arnold was born. Little did anyone know that he would grow up to become the most infamous villain in American history. But first, he would be one of the country's greatest war heroes. Fearless in the line of fire, a genius at strategy and motivating his men, General Arnold was America's first action hero. But his thirst for recognition would ultimately be his undoing.

    Would you listen to The Notorious Benedict Arnold again? Why?

    It would be easy to listen to this story again for a second.


    What did you like best about this story?

    We all know about Benedict Arnold but most books about the Revolution only give passing reference to his main sin (i.e. trying to turn over West Point to the British). This book gives us a far deeper and interesting story about the man and what drove him to change sides. No big surprise to learn it came down to "money" and "sex" (i.e. his young pretty wife). But that is okay - because the story gets you to the conclusion in a very interesting way. What was really good was the way the author structured the story - the juxaposition between the British Officer who would meet his fate at the gallows and Benedict Arnold. From the opening chaper of the narrative I was revited by the story
