I wasn't a fan of this book. I don't like books that feel the need to nit pick at great men.
I intended to write a whole bit about the many reasons I dislike these types of histories, but I'm just not in the mood to be negative today, it's too pretty. So I'll just include one of the ideas that I really liked. It was that among his peers: Adams, Jefferson, Hamilton, Franklin, Madison and others.. among these great men, he was considered a leader.
I haven't read another book just about Washington. But, I would recommend instead..
Washington's Crossing by David Hackett Fischer
Angel in the Whirlwind by Benson Bobrick
