By John Ferling. ISBN 978-0-19-515084-1. Copyright 2000. Softcover with 392 pages including notes, select bibliography, and index.
The story of the American Revolution and of the three Founders who played crucial roles in winning the War of Independence and creating a new nation. We see Washington, containing a profound anger at British injustice within an austere demeanor; Adams, far from home, struggling with severe illness and French duplicity in his crucial negotiations in Paris; and Jefferson, distracted and indecisive, confronting uncertainties about his future in politics.
