Publisher's summary

This comprehensive military biography of George Washington entertainingly examines Washington's capacity as a military leader. Acclaimed historian Edward G. Lengel, an associate editor of the University of Virginia's Papers of George Washington project, bases this engrossing work on the most extensive collection of Washington's personal correspondence.

Many biographies have been written about George Washington. But until this stunning volume, no book has so thorougly and intimately captured Washington's military accomplishments and examined them within the context of America's rise to prominence. Beginning with the French and Indian War, author Edward G. Lengel covers every aspect of Washington's military service. The result is a breathtaking account of the original American icon.

Lengel has crafted an instant classic...and the most extensive history yet of Washington the soldier.

Critic reviews

"For Lengel, Washington's character inspired the trust necessary for any successful revolution. This outstanding work does that character justice." (Publishers Weekly)
