Victory at Yorktown: A Novel
By Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen. ISBN-13:978-0312607074. Copyright 2012. Hardcover with 368 pages.
“New York Times” bestselling authors Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen present the triumphant conclusion to their George Washington series – a novel of leadership, brotherhood, loyalty, and the victory of the American cause. In 1781 Washington and his army had spent three years in a bitter stalemate, engaging in near constant skirmishing against the British. A bold and decisive plan was needed and General Washington made a risky plan to engage the enemy at Yorktown. Following the historical record, the authors combine real-life and fictional figures engaging in the most decisive contest of the Revolutionary War.
