By Richard Brookhiser. ISBN-13: 978-00684-83142-8. Copyright 1996. Softcover with 228 pages.
Challenging the modern perceptions of Washington as either a political figurehead of little real importance or a folk legend rather than a real man, Mr. Brookhiser traces George Washington's amazing accomplishments as a statesman, soldier, and founder of a great nation in a quarter century of activity that remains unmatched by any modern leader.
