Book Review: Valiant Ambition: George Washington, Benedict Arnold, and the Fate of the American Revolution

Posted By Russ Lockwood, Friday, May 3, 2019
by Nathaniel Philbrick. Centered around the politics of command, this fascinating look into events leading up to Benedict Arnold's treason shows how the sharp elbows of political maneuverings hindered and helped the American Revolution. Between fighting the British and fighting the Continental Congress, George comes out cleverer than ever while Benedict gets a nuanced profile about what drove the hero of Saratoga to end up selling out West Point and the fledgling USA. Well written. Enjoyed it.
