My thoughts:

Once the most popular man in America, General Washington was great in many ways-- “Father of Our Country”; a statesman, a hero and a gentleman. Serving for many years in the service of his country, he was a man of courage and principle. He was a man that went far above and beyond what would be required of or expected of a soldier and leader. Although, he was flawed, he was a man of honor who stood up for what he believed to be right. Washington, A Legacy of Leadership is an intimate look into his life and the decisions that made him so loved by his country.

It is well-written and packed with information about George Washinton‘s life. The reader will come away with a new, enhanced regard for the man who fought so diligently for America. If you love biography and history, this is definitely for you. I personally enjoyed the way the author helped the reader travel back in time, to meet and understand this American hero and genius.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze blogger program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
