This extraordinary one-volume biography vividly portrays the unbreakable link between
George Washington and the nation he helped create, defend, and govern. From his military career's
beginnings with the Virginia Regiment, here is the exceptional decisiveness that led him to fire the
opening shots in the 1754 war between England and France. . .the unshakable determination which,
in the darkest winter of the American Revolution, demanded total victory and yielded to nothing less.

Rich anecdotes and fascinating historical documents clearly reveal Washington's critical role in the
birth of a democratic nation. Here is a definitive portrait of George Washington, the man who unified
a new country riven by turmoil and went on to earn the love and respect of his soldiers, his countrymen,
and his peers. Library Journal acclaims it as "the best single-volume biography of Washington
ever written."

John R. Alden died in 1991. Blackstone Audiobooks has also recorded his George Washington: A Biography and Rise of the American Republic.
