WASHINGTON, TNE INDISPENSABLE MAN, The IIlustrated Edition
OTHER EARLY AMERICANA
Author: James Thomas Flexner

The author is a recognized expert in the life of George Washington originally publishing his biography in four award-winning volumes. This updated edition-based on the bestselling 1974 one-volume abridgement-offers an even richer, fuller perspective of Washington's character and career. It is indeed a historical tragedy that this towering figure is so little known to students and popular readers. Washington was not only our first president, setting the tone of the office until today, he won the American Revolution over eight hard-fought years against all odds. He also was the chairman of the Constitutional Convention, that produced the greatest document of freedom the world has ever known. Many historians consider him the greatest man of the last 1000 years. Very lush and profusely illustrated. Pictorial Cover. New York, NY, Sterling Publishing 2012 Sterling Signature Edition, 9 x 10, 436 Pgs., HB.
