Abstract:
Before he became the "Father of our Country," George Washington was the father of the American Army. He took an army with no experience, no tradition, and no training, and fought a protracted war against the British - the best, most disciplined force in the world. In Washington, award-winning author Gerald M. Carbone offers a compelling new look at the military career, lessons, and legacy of America's first general and first president.
