|Summary, etc.:|| The untold story of how George Washington took a disorderly, ill-equipped rabble and defeated the best trained and best equipped army of its day. Author John A. Nagy has become the nation's leading expert on Revolutionary spies, discovering hundreds who went behind enemy lines to gather intelligence during the American Revolution, many of whom are completely unknown to most historians. Using Washington's diary as the primary source, Nagy tells of Washington's experiences during the French and Indian War which honed his skill and upon which he heavily depended. He used espionage to level the playing field and then exploited it on to final victory. Filled with thrilling and never-before-told stories from the battlefield and behind enemy lines, this is the story of how Washington used a "Deception Battle Plan", fishermen's observances, false information, and misdirection to out-spy the British.
