    This volume gives a short factual bio of the great man. The author dispels some of the myths of the generals childhood and paints a picture of a man who was greater than life. Published in 1922 the book is somewhat dated in language but I believe that the story is told better than it would be by modern revisionist historians.

    This is a short book but I found it very readable. I learned more about the man than the myth. I recommend it.

    Certainly not the easiest read in the Amazon collection, but assuredly a different portrayal of George Washington than you’ll find in the more common “I cannot tell a lie” variety. I’m no scholar in histrionically figures, but this book had the ring of a fair and balanced presentation. Oh, and a Kindle freebie!

    If you read Teddy Roosevelt’s History of the United States first it will make more sense. Could be better written, author alludes to information but doesn’t cover it in detail. Unfortunate in that with one or two sentences you would know what he is talking about rather than having to research it in wiki or google. Worth a read even with that criticism.

    Interesting if you’re really into learning more about George Washington. It is, however, a difficult and slow read due to the language used in quotes by Washington and others of the 18th century but also by the author himself.

    This is a very good read, informative and in-depth. Good start for info and research on the “Great One!”

    Good reminder of the amazing events that gave birth to this country. The taxation of the colonies that inspired the Revolution is history repeated in Obama era politics.

    This book draws some interesting parallels between WWI and Washingtons advocacy of neutrality in the conflict between Great Britain and France.
