|Summary, etc.:|| George Washington is the human story of a man who turned an impoverished childhood and the frequent humiliations at the hands of a mother he feared and the British generals he admired into a career of rebellion and creation. When he had worn out and nearly bankrupted his allies, Washington disbanded the victorious army he had forged, giving life to democratic government. George III once said that if Washington could give up power, he would be the greatest man of the eighteenth century. And Washington did. Twice. Here, from award-winning historian Willard Sterne Randall, is the human story of America's Founding Father.
