Description

It is the spring of 1776 and American is jubilant at having driven the British out of Boston. But now it faces the threat of brutal retaliation that could destroy any chance of victory. As the year draws to a close, Britain's army is massed, well-trained, and ready to pounce; America's forces are small, untrained, and unruly. George Washington, who has little real experience with a threat of this magnitude, is unanimously chosen as commander in chief in hopes that he can unite the ragtag Continental army. As the British begin their invasion of New York City and its environs, George Washington isn't the only one with doubts that he, and the country he leads, can succeed against such overwhelming odds. In this breathtaking account of a pivotal time in the American Revolution, two-time Newbery Honor Book author Jim Murphy allows us to experience George Washington's transformation from an indecisive leader into a brilliant and confident commander as he delivers the country from the blackest of times --- into the brightest of futures.
